Talking Dictionaries for Indigenous Language, November 16, 2013

The workshop focused on learning a free dictionary-making software (FLEx- Fieldworks
Language Explorer) that a number of tribes have used to create online dictionaries with audio and pictures or to create text collections of their stories in bilingual format. Local languages O’odham (both Tohono and Akimel) and Hiaki (Yaqui) were highlighted in this training. Participants from other tribes also attended.

The free, hands-on workshop was led by Colleen Fitzgerald, Ph.D., and was held at the College of Education, University of Arizona, Tucson.
