Intro to LaTeX for Linguists

Here’s the materials and links I hand out to my students who are learning TeX for the first time:

  • A basic TeX template with IPA using the TIPA package, interlinear glossing in gb4e, and Syntax trees in qtree:
    • tex
    • pdf
    • Compile using pdftex. Run twice to get the example references right (or use the or pdftex + makeindex + bibtex option in TeXworks and some other editors).
  • A basic TeX template with IPA using the Charis SIL unicode font, interlinear glossing in gb4e, and Syntax trees in qtree:
    • tex
    • pdf
    • Compile using xelatex. Run twice to get the example references right (or use the or xelatex + makeindex + bibtex option in TeXworks and some other editors).
  • Same as above but with an added section on using BibTeX:
    • tex
    • pdf
    • example.bib (Needed for the references. I recommend using bibliography management software like Jabref.)
    • sp.bst (Needed for bibliography formatting. Make sure you put it in a place where TeX can find it.)
    • More on using BibTeX: www.bibtex.org
    • Compile using xelatex. Run twice to get the example references right (or use the or xelatex + makeindex + bibtex option in TeXworks and some other editors).
