LaTeX is a free open-source typesetting program which has a number of add-ons designed specifically for linguistics publication. Highlights include full access to the IPA, tree drawing by typing in labelled bracketing, and a module specifically designed to keep track of example numbering and formatting of the standard three-line presentation of foreign language data. This seminar will introduce participants to ShareLaTeX, which is an online LaTeX editor and compiler, meaning that the only software you need on your machine is a web browser and a .pdf reader. Participants are encouraged to bring a Wi-Fi enabled laptop to the seminar.
