ELAN 1 or an understanding of the concepts covered in ELAN 1.

Location: Library 315A
Week 2: Tuesday, June 24-Friday, June 27
Period 2: 10:15-11:45 am

ELAN 2 will cover the following topics: a) importing existing text documents into ELAN; b) annotating video files, including troubleshooting formatting and playback issues; c) using ELAN to create a DVD, and d) using advanced search functions including regular expressions in ELAN.

In this class we will learn how to use the ELAN software to link transcriptions to audio and video media. We will also talk extensively about how to conceptualize tiers (layers of linguistic analysis and glossing in your transcription) so that you can create annotations flexible enough for a range of configurations of speakers and languages.

This class will be useful for anyone working with extended spontaneous speech recordings, including narratives and conversation.
If you have recordings and transcriptions you'd like to work on during this class, please bring them along! If you don't, I'll provide some for you to practice with.
