Index of elements and attributes

Version 3.0 beta

This is a preliminary version which can be changed or updated at any time.
The index is being compiled by Nina Stensaker

 

Introduction

This is an index of all elements and their attributes discussed in the handbook.

For each element, we give a brief definition and a link to the chapter where it is discussed and exemplified.

Most elements can have several attributes, and each attribute a number of values. We list the recommended attributes in the handbook, and we suggest which attributes that are obligatory (Obl) and which are facultative (Fac).

Alphabetical list of elements and their attributes

Attributes include: ch. 7.3.1, 8.1, 8.3, 9.3.1.1, 16.3.1,

       ‘’leaf Leaf/leaves
       ‘’chars Characters
  @dim Fac Indicates the dimension of the space, i.e. whether it is horizontal or vertical.

       ‘’missing This attribute covers a number of situations, such as text which is lost through damage, text which is not in the manuscript (there being an empty space), text which is unclear, and text which is simply illegible. While each of these types could have been given an attribute of their own, we suggest using a simple dichotomy between this value and the next:
       ‘’conjecture Text that the transcriber believes should be added so as to make the text better with respect to grammar, lexicon, syntax, context or the like, but which possibly was not intended by the scribe. By naming this value ‘conjecture’ we signal that it is less certain and more open to discussion than ‘missing’ text
