Why linguists need TROLLing
A excellently nerdy promotional video about the Tromsø Repository Of Language and Linguistics (TROLLing), a database for archiving and making accessible linguistic data and statistical code. From their About page:
The archive is open access, which means that all information is available to to everyone. All postings are accompanied by searchable metadata that identify the researchers, the languages and linguistic phenomena involved, the statistical methods applied, and scholarly publications based on the data (where relevant).
Linguists worldwide are invited to post datasets and statistical models used in linguistic research.
It looks like a great initiative, and I hope they continue to get submissions! (Although see the Linguistics in the Pub discussion “Who should have access to linguistic data?" for some complicating factors.)
