An outstanding question from ECH, MDH & SMK's 2019-09-09 meeting was: What are the <m> tags for particles (and clitics) within <phr>s doing?
They are not currently processed in generating the website or the print dictionary. However, they ARE used in our statistical reports on clitic distribution (on the Diagnostics page), so don’t remove them!
For the website, the plan is for Martin to use the <m> tags in <phr>s in a new function, "Retrieve all example sentences containing this particle", in the future when the website is public. This will parallel the “other entries containing this morpheme” function, which retrieves all entries containing a given root or affix.
For the alphabetical listing in the print dictionary, we plan to display the "top 4" cits for all affix, particle and pronominal entries. These cits are (or will be made) part of the entries (i.e. not commented out), so don't need to be found programmatically.
To Do items for this sub-project are noted in our Overall To Do List document, and detailed in docs/To Do Lists/cits_for_affixes_and_particles.odt.
For the affix indices in the print dictionary, we had thought about displaying ALL the cits for each affix, particle and pronominal, found programmatically. We have not implemented this yet. Do we want to? It would make these indices very long!
