LaTeX Programming: Coding Syntactic Trees in LaTeX with Qtree. 

In a previous post, I discussed the LaTeX in general terms, there I made an unsubstantiated claim that it could be of benefit to  the Linguist. In an attempt to substantiate that claim this post came to life. I will try highlight how the the LaTeX programme may be employed to solve the problems Syntactic tree drawing without pencils.

So it is day number 3 for me since I started learning LaTeX /leɪ.tɛk/ or /la.tɛk/, and the programme continues to prove it’s worth. In a previous post, I discussed the LaTeX in general terms, there I made an unsubstantiated claim that it could be of benefit to  the Linguist. In an attempt to substantiate that claim this post came to life. I will try highlight how the the LaTeX programme may be employed to solve the problems Syntactic tree drawing without pencils.

This post will be in the form of the presentation of a set of screen shots of a document created with the VerbTeX application for android devices, which includes some syntactic trees and instructions for their derivation. The raw code is also included.

LaTeX input code first page run on an android device with VerbTeX
LaTeX input code second page run on an android device with VerbTeX

Thank you for your time.
