Discussions on the reconstruction schema

: Martin Holmes
Minutes: 140

ML and I have been struggling to figure out the proper relationships between what we were calling cits and the reconstructed entries, but today we had a breakthrough: cits are not cits at all, but examples, which means they can be invented, curated, modified, or simply taken verbatim from primary sources. The resulting plan is to switch their name to eg and rework their structure a bit. With this clarification it’s much easier for me at least to imagine the build process and relationships between components.

Also had a project meeting and discussed the transcription principles for the Sagard text which is an early modern print text and so differs from the MSS in form and convention.
