computing for languages and linguists


The Certificate in Humanities Computing for Languages (aka CHUCOL, pronounced 'chuckle') which is offered by Gavin Burnage at Cambridge University is where I first really became interested in serious web design for a purpose. The course culminated with the creation of a large multimedia project for language learning: a CD-ROM which used French pop music to teach some key grammar points.

Due to the use of copyright material in the latter, I cannot publish it but the link below will take you to the rest of my CHUCOL work.

I have also written the following pages and bits of code, in no particular order:

  • IPA in Unicode
    A simple JavaScript-based tool to give HTML entities and Unicode output for small amounts of Unicode.
  • SMIL for linguists
    Using this newish web-based authoring language to create multimedia applications for classroom use.
  • Euro Converter
    A simple JavaScript that will convert amounts in Euros back into the old national currencies of the Euro Zone.
