tiers_rename {act}R Documentation

Rename tiers

Description

Renames all tiers in all transcript objects of a corpus. If only certain transcripts should be affected set the parameter filterTranscriptNames. In case that you want to select transcripts by using regular expressions use the function act::search_makefilter first.

Usage

tiers_rename(x, searchPattern, searchReplacement, filterTranscriptNames = NULL)

Arguments

x

Corpus object.

searchPattern

Character string; search pattern as regular expression.

searchReplacement

Character string; replacement string.

filterTranscriptNames

Vector of character strings; names of the transcripts to be included.

Details

The tiers will only be renamed if the resulting names preserve the uniqueness of the tier names. Results will be reported in @history of the transcript objects. Please be aware that this function is not optimized for speed and may take quite a while to run, depending on the size of your corpus object.

Value

Corpus object.
