GRC: Oracc Linguistic Annotation for Greek

This document provides an overview of language-specific annotation conventions for Greek used in Oracc.

Transliteration

Greek is indicated by the language shift %grc.

Greek may be entered in Unicode without any special indication to the ATF processor; we define an ASCII transliteration as well since it may be easier for some users to employ.

Words are separated by spaces.

Editing Conventions

Matching square brackets are used for broken material, a following question mark for unclear letters and a following exclamation mark for corrected letters. Multiple alternative possible readings are separated by slashes (e.g., d/r).

Within square brackets, broken segments of relatively certain length are indicated by a period for each missing letter.

Broken segments of uncertain length are indicated by underscore characters, e.g., [...]br [________________________] indicates that in the first break 3 characters are missing, and in the second break more a large but indeterminate number of characters is missing.

Spaces should be used to terminate words in breaks; words may contain dots and underscores indicating that they are partially preserved, e.g., [_____ _]br[_ _____].
