The multilingual Interlinear Glossed Text (IGT) Bank.

With TypeCraft you can freely access grammatically glossed examples (IGT) from more than 150 languages (see:Portal of Languages ). Examples can be exported, and may be used to inform your own research. You also can use TypeCraft to create your own Interlinear Glossed Text for any language you wish. You can store the data in your own privat space, or share your work with a group.

The TypeCraft Editor and TypeCraft Search

After login, you can access the TypeCraft application from the TypeCraft menu in the upper left corner. Use "New text" or "My texts" to manage your data. Even if you are already an experienced TypeCraft user we advise you to have a look at the Quick Start page before you start editing in TypeCraft 2.5. TypeCraft data can be searched on any level - from the text to the morph level. Use "Text search or "Phrase search". You can search for individual glosses, or part of speech specifications. Search results can be freely downloaded in various formats. For more help with data search or data export turn to the Help pages which you can access from the TypeCraft menu on this page.

The TypeCraft Wiki

The TypeCraft Wiki consists of 286 articles which discuss mostly less described languages and address linguistic questions. It is easy to draw on data from our database by embedding Interlinear Glossed Texts into a wiki page. The category page Languages offers an overview over the TypeCraft Wiki pages ordered by language. Use the wiki search box in the upper right corner to search this wiki.

TypeCraft Portal of Languages

Our Portal of Languages is a dynamic list of those languages that have more than 5 public texts in the database. Our Portal allows you to download texts and phrases using different export formats.
