FieldWorks Language Explorer is the lexical and text tools component of SIL FieldWorks. It is an open source desktop application designed to help field linguists perform many common tasks. It can help you:

  •     elicit and record lexical information
  •     create dictionaries
  •     interlinearize texts
  •     study morphology

It uses a huge monolitic database instead of text or XML files, and the export and import functions (e.g., from and to ELAN) are demanding.
