Oracc Lemmatization Colors

In 2020–21, as part of the development of the new version of the electronic Pennsylvania Sumerian Dictionary [/epsd2/] (ePSD2), Steve Tinney implemented a detailed colorization scheme for the lemmatization of proper nouns. The names of people, places, deities, etc. — when lemmatized in a text's transliteration — are no longer the standard hyperlink blue, but rather are colored according to their proper noun part of speech (POS) classification and, therefore, are easier to identify in the linguistically-annotated editions. The table below lists the HTML colors associated with each Proper Noun POS on Oracc.

POSMeaningClassHTML Color

DNDivine NameDivinedeepskyblue
ENEthnos NameEthnicdarkred

QNQuarter Name (city area)Placesolive
RNRoyal NamePeoplepurple
SNSettlement NamePlacesdarkgreen
TNTemple NameTemplesmediumslateblue
WNWatercourse NameWatercoursesmediumaquamarine
YNYear NameYear nameblue

The proper noun type YN does not have a distinct colorization because YNs are not treated as single words in Oracc. In addition, numbers in the transliteration are colored slategrey and Emesal Sumerian words are colored mediumorchid.
