Lingua Libre is a project which aims to build a collaborative multilingual audiovisual corpus under free licence in order to expand knowledge about languages and help online language communities to develop.
You can help us!
You can visit this page if you want to learn more about the project.

Before starting

You can create your User page by clicking on it. We recommend that you integrate the babel template onto it. It is very useful to indicate to others the languages you speak, and to facilitate finding other persons speaking your languages. If you are not familiar with wikicode, you can go to this demo User page, read the instructions and copy the prepared babel template, and then paste it onto your user page before adapting it to your information. You can then publish your User page!

Where to start?
  • Follow the steps of the Record Wizard
  • Think of the words you want to record. You may enter them one by one (live list), use an existing category from a Wiktionary or Wikipedia project, or create your own list.
Do you need help?

You can visit this help page where you will find advice for beginning your contributions on Lingua Libre. If you did not find the answer to your question, please ask it in the Chat room.

Good practice
  • Try to avoid background noises during the recording
  • Please listen to the pronunciations before uploading them
  • Consider using an external microphone

Dictionaries ?

Hello Eeyeon, Lingualibre's Lists don't support rich dictionary yet. (dictionary : a list of items with several aspects of a word such as pronunciation, definition, translation). We could add such support soon tho, so you can have your dictionary here, editable, AND record the entry words. (translate) Yug (talk) 19:23, 11 May 2023 (UTC)

I would also encourage you to merge your lists. You can have longer wiki pages up to 1000 items. Yug (talk) 19:26, 11 May 2023 (UTC)
It's optional, but the naming convention is usually using `List:{isocode}/{title}` such as List:Teo/....
Would you like me to quickly rename your lists ? (ex: List:Teochew en conceptualAdjList:Teo/ConceptualAdj) Yug (talk)
Hi Yug, thanks for your message! I hope this is the right way to reply, otherwise, please let me know!
So, I'm actually working on a workshop (held tomorrow!) with 30 other people so I can get a variety of pronunciation for Teochew words. The workshop is meant to be "fun", that's why I'm making relatively short lists. I acutally want the participants to feel rewarded for what they do, and I hope a little competition will motivate them, as we'll rank them by the number of lists they went through :D
As for the name of the list, unfortunately, Teochew does not have an ISO code yet so we figured it would be easier to use the whole word for now. Also, participants will be speak either French or English, that's why I used "en" or "fr" in the name of the lists. I'm ok with renaming the lists but after the workshop if that's ok for you. Because we already prepared documentation using this convention (teochew_en/fr_theme)... :| Eeyeon (talk) 21:40, 11 May 2023 (UTC)
