Abstract and Keywords

This chapter is concerned with web-based sharing of data for research, pedagogical, or demonstration purposes. Modern corpus projects are usually designed with a web-based administration of the corpus compilation process in mind, but the transfer of existing corpora to the web is an even more challenging task. This chapter reviews the solutions available for designing a web-based phonological corpus and making it available. It gives also a practical step-by-step description of how to archive and share a phonological corpus on the web. Finally, the author discusses a novel approach, based on the latest HTML5 and relying only on the now universal Javascript language, implemented in any modern browser. The new system he presents runs online from any http server, but also offline from a hard drive, CD/DVD, or flash drive memory, thus opening up new possibilities for the dissemination of phonological corpora.

Keywords: web-based corpora, web-based administration, HTML5, Javascript, archiving
