Bulk Editing/ Regular Expressions

Bulk Editing Tools

  • FieldWorks Lexicon Bulk Editing Youtube playlist (SIL videos): Link

  • Replacing empty fields with content: Using Bulk Edit Replace for Empty Fields in FLEx: Link

    • This is useful for filling in the Researcher custom field for our Field Methods class purposes.

  • Bulk copying lexeme forms to pronunciations: Link

    • In Field Methods class, we start by transcribing our lexeme forms phonetically. We will eventually phonemicize these lexeme forms (or semi-phonemicize) but we don't want to lose the phonetic transcription. We store these in the pronunciation field. We can quickly bulk copy all of our phonetic lexeme forms into empty pronunciations.
