Through pressing on the colour bar of the Language families shown to the right you get access to more information about the languages associated with a TCwiki article and represented in the TypeCraft database. Notice that not all languages that are stored in the TypeCraft database are associated with a TCwiki article. For you who annotate data with the TC-Editor and store it in the TypeCraft database it might be a good idea to contribute to a better on-line representation of your language by creating a TC-wiki page. This also gives you the chance to represent some of your data directly online. How to embed interlinear glosses stored in the TypeCraft database in a TC-wiki page is explained here

Articles on the TC-wiki are related to data kept in the TypeCraft database. By writing about your lanuage, you can for example share issues related to the annotation of your language (e.g.Annotating_Konkomba) or discuss issues relating to the development of your language (e.g.Telugu_The_Language).

A good start could also be to give an overview over the grammatical properties of your language. This can be done using a Typological Feature Templates (e.g.Typological_Features_Template_for_Akan). A blueprint for such a template can be found here.

If you wish to search the TypeCraft database go to the navigation bar at the left of this browser window and click on *Text search*, or simply click here. When you search without specifying a language or a text, search will return all texts that their owners have chosen to publish on TypeCraft.
