English: Developing digital resources is an expensive and time-consuming endeavour; especially in the case of less-resourced languages. We developed TurboAnnotate in an attempt to accelerate the annotation of linguistic data by means of bootstrapping linguistic data for machine-learning purposes. The design and functionality of the tool is given to show how machine learning is used in the annotation process. It is shown that TurboAnnotate does not only promise to help increase the accuracy of human annotators; but also to save enormously on human effort in terms of time.
