Language Archive Usability
This project seeks to make known issues in Language Resource Accessibility. It is primarily concerned with two facets of accessibility:
- the User Experience related to interacting with archived content; and
- the aggregation of item level metadata about language resources in collections.
I maintain a github repo with raw data and academic outputs for this project at: https://github.com/HughP/Lexical-Database-Archiving-Stats
My research interests include typological patterns in articulatory phonetics; User Experience design in language tools; and graph theory applied to language and linguistic resource discovery.
