Interlinear Gloss Formating Tool

Enter the foreign text, fluid translated text, and a mini-dictionary to get 3 ways to do a interlinear gloss.

Text to Gloss:
Fluid English:
CSV Dictionary:

Don't have a dictionary? Leave the dictionary blank. Click "Gloss it" and I will create a dictionary with everything but the translations. Fill in the translations and paste into the dictionary and repeat to get a gloss.

CSV Dictionary should look like this:

telo,water
amuq’-da-č,stay-FUT-NEG
essandu,eat:they:shall

Here is more on how to gloss.

Formatted using <pre>

Works anywhere that you have fixed width text.

mi   wile   moku   e    telo    nasa      pi   pan     pimeja   
1S   want   eat    DO   water   strange   of   bread   black    
I want to drink Guiness beer.

Formatted using <table>

Works even if you don't have access to CSS.

mi wile moku e telo nasa pi pan pimeja
1S want eat DO water strange of bread black
I want to drink Guiness beer.


Formatted using <ul>

Requires a CSS snippet or it will look like a list of words.

  • mi
  • wile
  • moku
  • e
  • telo
  • nasa
  • pi
  • pan
  • pimeja
  • 1S
  • want
  • eat
  • DO
  • water
  • strange
  • of
  • bread
  • black

I want to drink Guiness beer.


The Glosser does a simple dictionary lookup with the dictionary you provide. The interlinear gloss formatter can't parse words into morphemes. It can't cope with words with multiple meanings either.
