David Chamberlain, Annotating the metre of ancient Greek and Latin

Link for subscription

I am engaged in an open access (CC-BY) project to document the metrical patterns of all of Classical Greek and Latin. TEI xml allows for tagging metre in a few different ways, but none of them have proven to be adequate to the needs of this project, above all because of a conflict between TEI conventions for tagging speakers in drama and the need to identify metrical patterns based on the unit of the line, and because they do not well allow for syllabic representation of phenomena such as elision and crasis, especially in Greek. I have chosen not only to eschew TEI, but xml itself, since my project relies on representation in html both for annotation itself, and then for publishing of results.


The event will be held in English
