I'm a linguist with a technological bent. For my master's thesis, I developed a lexical transducer of North Slope Inupiaq. I used Tcl to convert lexical data from custom text formats into xfst/lexc source code, and SQLiteStudio to manage the data I used to evaluate the finished transducer. Since graduating, I've also used Tcl/Tk in conjunction with my transducer to develop some computerized tasks for Inupiaq language learners.

Other ways I've used Tcl/Tk in recent years:

  • with Snack, in software to allow linguists to transcribe, time-align, extract, and splice together recorded speech
  • with tDOM, in several ad hoc steps, to convert Knut Bergsland's Aleut Dictionary from PageMaker 4 files to XML (which still needs some major cleanup)

In not-so-recent years, I used Tcl/Tk (extended with C) to visualize, convert, and extract metadata from neuroimaging data (mostly MRI).
