Technology, language documentation and metadocumentation
With the revolution in the area of information technologies, it is now possible to maintain organized and long-lasting linguistic and cultural records. Software and different technical linguistic tools play a vital role in producing audio and video recordings, annotations, translation distribution and different sort of metadata of linguistic material. However, technology changes rapidly and an uncritical adoption of new tools and technologies might compromise with long-term sustainability, portability, usability and compatibility with other platforms (Bird & Simons, 2003) . This paper, hence, concerns itself with the role of technology in language documentation and its possible pros and cons.
