Phonology Assistant helps you discover and test the rules of sound in a language. Provided with a corpus of phonetic data, it automatically charts the sounds. There are a wide range of search capabilities to aid your analysis process.

With Phonology Assistant, you can do the following:

  • Work with data from FieldWorks’ Language Explorer (FLEx), Toolbox or Speech Analyzer
  • Transcribe possible alternatives for phones about which you’re uncertain
  • Fine tune phonetic parsing by specifying ambiguous sequences
  • Experiment by changing transcriptions “on-the-fly” without affecting the source data
  • Generate charts and histograms based on your data corpus
  • Easily search through phonetic data
  • Create distribution charts to further analyze your phonetic data
  • Export charts and search results for further analysis or reporting
