Minimal Coding Page
This site provides links to documents describing minimal coding techniques for the analysis of language transcripts as well as dos programs that perform the analyses.
Minimal Transcript Coding
This document describes the minimal coding technique and provides examples of language transcripts with minimal and maximal coding.
Processing Elan transciption files
This document provides step-by-step instructions for creating concordance files for Elan transcriptions. It provides detailed information on running the perl concordance program qancord.pl and analyzing the results in Excel.
A Guide to Using the Minimal Coding Programs
This document describes the computer programs that perform the minimal coding transcript analyses. It provides detailed information on the coding conventions used by the programs as well as instructions for using the programs.
Minimal Coding Programs and example text
Perl concordance program
This program produces a lexical concordance for Elan transcription files. Change the extension from "txt" to "pl" to run the program with Perl.
The example text and programs can be downloaded for use on personal computers.
This file provides an sample text that follows the conventions for the minimal coding programs.
This program adds a morphological coding tier to language transcripts.
This program produces a lexical concordance for language transcripts from the output of Qanform.
This program produces a morphological concordance for language transcripts from the output of Qanform.
This program produces a morphological concordance in an excel format for language transcripts from the output of Qanform.
This program allows the user to merge two or more concordances together.
This program produces a verb concordance for a language transcript.
Suggestions for improving the programs are always welcome.
