TitleEncoding a Historical Dictionary with the TEI (With reference to the Electronic Scottish National Dictionary Project)
AbstractThis paper examines the practicalities of applying the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) guidelines to the encoding of historical dictionaries, with particular reference to the Electronic Scottish National Dictionary (eSND) project. It discusses in detail the features of the eSND which are not specifically covered by the current TEI guidelines, and offers practical and simple solutions which historical lexicographers can use to adapt and extend the current TEI coding scheme. The paper will assume the audience has a basic awareness of SGML or XML mark-up, but does not require a detailed knowledge of the TEI encoding scheme.
