DICTIONARIES ON SAMOYEDIC LANGUAGES AND LINGVODOC SOFTWARE SYSTEM FOR COLLABORATIVE WORK ON DICTIONARIES AND ONLINE PUBLISHING

Dr. Julia Normanskaja

ABSTRACT

The LingvoDoc software system (http://lingvodoc.ispras.ru/) is a recent piece of computer technology created especially for describing and recording endangered languages. This paper illustrates how the authors used LingvoDoc to bring the description and analysis of Samoyedic languages to a new level with easily verifiable results. To date, the project has produced:
1. 10 online audio-dictionaries covering all presently living dialects of Samoyedic languages;
2. 6 audio-dictionaries and concordances based on archival data, with etymological connections traced to entries in the audio-dictionaries.
The hosting of these materials through LingvoDoc gives scholars the opportunity to analyze the information in a convenient format – both by etymological group and separately for each dialect at a given period in the history, with the option to trace changes within each dialect.
