Field Linguist's Toolbox

Data management and analysis tool for field linguists


Toolbox is a text-oriented database management system with added functionality designed to meet the needs of a field linguist. It is especially useful for maintaining lexical data, and for parsing and interlinearizing text, but it can be used to manage virtually any kind of data.

The underlying DBMS offers full user flexibility in the design of any type of database. But for ease of use, the Toolbox package includes prepared database definitions for a typical dictionary and text corpus. Toolbox is actively supported by people from an SIL field entity.
