3.5.3. Analyzer setup & configuration

In order to interlinearize annotations on a specific tier successfully, some configuration needs to be done. To do so, you will need to choose one or more analyzers and configure what tier types will be used as source and which ones will be the target(s).

First, open the configuration menu by clicking the Edit configuration... button on the lower right.

From the dialog that appears, you can choose the analyzers you would like to use and set the source and target tiers for each analyzer.

First, you choose a certain analyzer, as described in Section 3.5.1. You can choose multiple analyzers, one per line.

Each chosen analyzer will need a source and target tier type for it to function. You cannot choose the same type twice for one analyzer, and tiers must relate to each other as indicated by the analyzer's constraints. In the case of the Lexicon analyzer, this is a combined analyzer (parse and gloss analysis) and therefore needs two target tier types.

Choosing the source and target tier types

Figure 3.31. Choosing the source and target tier types

In a common setup, when two seperate analyzers are used, the target tier of the first analyzer will function as the source tier for the second analyzer. When you are done with the configuration, click Apply to finish and go back to the main screen.


An important counterpart of the configuration of analyzers that require access to a lexicon, consists of linking tier types to the proper fields in a specific lexicon. This way the analyzer knows which field in which lexicon to query. See ...
