This talk was presented on 2021 April 8 - 11 at the 39th meeting of the West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics.

Provided abstract:
The goals of formal linguistic research today are rarely in line with language communities’ language revitalization efforts. One way to connect linguistic research with work on language reclamation is to conduct an applied project. Our project is community-based and interdisciplinary, involving computer science and musicology, and introduces a psychoacoustic scale, called the Melodic Transcription (MeT) scale, developed for transcribing pitch contours in the context of language documentation.
