What We've Covered

Module by: Joseph Grimes. E-mail the author

Summary: What we've covered in the preceding sections.

In the preceding sections you've acquired a vocabulary for talking about the elements of comparative phonology as manifested in Wordcorr -- Wordcorrspeak, we might call it. You have the concepts that define the framework in which Wordcorr operates:

  • User
  • Metadata
  • Collection
  • Variety
  • Datum
  • Easy IPA
  • View
  • Backup
  • Export

What you don't have yet are the operations at the heart of doing comparative phonology:

  • Annotate
  • Tabulate
  • Refine
  • Share

There's a reason for not going into them in a tutorial like this one. It's that they are best understood by loading up Wordcorr (details in the Installation tutorial), going to the Wordcorr Web site (, and trying it yourself, using both the Web site and the Help facility that downloads with Wordcorr itself.

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
