Basic Tagging

Julia Flanders


This tutorial covers the basic elements used to encode a TEI document, focusing on the fundamental structural elements for marking up your text (in particular, for basic prose, poetry, and drama). Building from these foundational elements, the tutorial covers phrase-level elements, like names, references, and linguistic features. These slides also cover: How to correct, regularize, or modernize the text while still acknowledging the original; how to encode authorial or editorial deletions and revisions of the text; and how to show uncertainty about your reading of the text.
