interlineaR: Importing Interlinearized Corpora and Dictionaries as Produced by Descriptive Linguistics Software

Interlinearized glossed texts (IGT) are used in descriptive linguistics for representing a morphological analysis of a text through a morpheme-by-morpheme gloss. 'InterlineaR' provide a set of functions that targets several popular formats of IGT ('SIL Toolbox', 'EMELD XML') and that turns an IGT into a set of data frames following a relational model (the tables represent the different linguistic units: texts, sentences, word, morphems). The same pieces of software ('SIL FLEX', 'SIL Toolbox') typically produce dictionaries of the morphemes used in the glosses. 'InterlineaR' provide a function for turning the LIFT XML dictionary format into a set of data frames following a relational model in order to represent the dictionary entries, the sense(s) attached to the entries, the example(s) attached to senses, etc.
