IRCyr Metadata indexing

Page history last edited by Gabriel Bodard 13 years, 8 months ago

Tagging metadata in the text (for indexing) in IRCyr

 

(cf. also IRCyr Metadata in header)

 

Persons

 

Personal names should already have been tagged as part of the tokenization stage; please review and check that persons are correctly identified.

 

If the text is published (pre-1987), and the XML file has already been lemmatized (nominative of Greek name in @nymRef attribute), then check if any person identified as "attested" is listed in LGPN vol I (on top shelf behind desk). If they are, then they will have a number in that edition. For example, in A.60 (A06000) the name Εἰρήνη occurs--she is in LGPN I (page 147) as number 7. Please add an attribute @key with this number, as follows:

 

          <persName type="attested" nymRef="Εἰρήνη" key="7"><name>Εἰρήνη</name></persName>

 

Places

 

Placenames and geographical names should already have been tagged as part of the tokenization stage; please review and check that places are correctly identified.

 

Numbers

 

Numerals should already have been tagged as part of the tokenization stage; please review and check that numerals are correctly identified.

 

Months

 

 

Egyptian or Latin month names should be tagged in the text as words (<w>), and then additionally, outside this, as month with a key pointing to the authority list in AL_latin_months.xml.

 

          <rs type="month" key="Ἀθύρ">Ἁθὺρ</rs>

 

Age at death

 

On funerary texts, when the age of the deceased is given (usually after the word ἐτῶν, "years old"), this should be tagged as a date with a duration (rather than a fixed date in time), as follows:

 

     <date when-iso="P21Y"><expan><ex>ἐτῶν</ex></expan> <num value="21">κα</num></date>

 

Roman tribes

 

If a person's name includes a reference to Roman tribe (Pollia, Quirina, etc.), this should be tagged as:

 

     <name type="tribe">Κύρινα</name>

 

Religious/Military terms etc.

 

At this stage we are not tagging military terminology, titulature, religious indicators, social/political/economic vocabulary, etc. in IRCyr.
