Easy Linguistics Document Writing with R Markdown

Provides 'Shiny gadgets' to search, type, and insert IPA symbols into documents or scripts, requiring only knowledge about phonetics or 'X-SAMPA'. Also provides functions to facilitate the rendering of IPA symbols in 'LaTeX' and PDF format, making IPA symbols properly rendered in all output formats. A minimal R Markdown template for authoring Linguistics related documents is also bundled with the package.

The goal of linguisticsdown is to support Linguistics-related document writing in R Markdown, such as providing a Shiny Gadget to write and insert IPA symbols easily and functions to draw syntax tree (not implemented yet).
