Dear colleagues,

We are glad to inform you that the previously announced INEL corpora of 
Selkup and Kamas languages are now accessible through a new search 
The starting pages for both corpora are as follows:
Selkup: https://inel.corpora.uni-hamburg.de/SelkupCorpus/search
Kamas: https://inel.corpora.uni-hamburg.de/KamasCorpus/search

The search is based on the Tsakonian Corpus Platform (Tsakorpus, 
https://bitbucket.org/tsakorpus/). It allows for searching based on 
transcription ("Word" field, also "Lemma" for the default root shape), 
translation, and/or grammatical glosses or categories, including 
negative queries and multi-word queries (with or without distance 
constraints). Change the "View" from "standard" to "glossed" in the 
options to get the glossed output.
Grammatical tags are unordered, they are generated from glosses by 
rules. It is usually more efficient to search for grammatical tags than 
for specific glosses, unless you're sure of the exact gloss(es) and 
their relative order in the word.
Pop-up windows in both "Grammar" and "Gloss" fields let you pick and 
choose specific grammatical tags/glosses from the corpus-specific list.

We hope you will enjoy using this search interface.
While help pages will be gradually updated, please send your comments 
and suggestions to: inel at uni-hamburg.de.

Best regards,
Alexandre Arkhipov
