In our discussion today about segments with more than one possible hyph, we also revisited how hyphs should look in print dictionary entries. We currently show the hyph followed by the "translated hyph" - e.g.:
[[x̣mánk-n-c • love-CTR-TR.1SgObj.3TrSbj]]
The final segment -c is shown to be composed of 3 morphemes, separated by periods: TR.1SgObj.3TrSbj
We are concerned that this will not be transparent to learner users of the dictionary. So we decided to update the <label> elements to include the first <pron> of the morpheme entry, where that would be helpful - e.g.
We need to think further about exactly how this should be implemented.
We should also check again how Montler 2012 represented syncretic morphemes in these "translated hyphs" in his root-based index. See photocopies in Print Dictionary Working Notes folder.
And we need to add an index of labels somewhere in the dictionary front matter!
