PanLex development

Welcome to the PanLex development site. Here you will find documentation for working with and adding to the PanLex database.

If you are not familiar with the structure of the PanLex database, you should start by getting up to speed with the fundamental concepts underpinning the PanLex database. Next, you can get an overview of the database design. You can also read a short introduction to find out more about the development of the PanLex project and get other background information. You should also familiarize yourself with the PanLem interface to the database by following the PanLem tutorial.

If you are interested in helping us add new sources to PanLex, you should read about our source workflow and then follow the source analysis tutorial. This will show you how to use the resources in the PanLex toolbox, a collection of Perl scripts that we have developed for analyzing sources.

If you are interested in developing a new interface to PanLex or making use of the PanLex data set in your program, you can read about our public API.
