MayanWiki: An Online, Consensus-Based Linguistic Corpus of the Mayan Hieroglyphs MayanWiki: An Online, Consensus-Based Linguistic Corpus of the Mayan Hieroglyphs
Unfortunately, no such corpus currently exists. The purpose of this project is to present MayanWiki as a relational database of hieroglyphic transcriptions and transliterations with a wiki frontend that includes advanced search functionality that meets the aforementioned criteria. The principle behind the wiki is to accelerate the convergence of readings to the “truth”. Once the database is fully populated by users, it will become a valuable tool allowing them to manipulate data in ways that will facilitate scientific discovery of new and interesting linguistic patterns.
