- Tag declaration:
- abbr = 28
All abbreviations are marked.
- body = 1
- date = 40
All dates which contain one or more digits (the characters 0-9) are
marked, including dates specifying day/month/year and dates consisting
only of a year. The attribute 'iso8601' is used consistently except in two cases:
when the date specifies year and consists only of digits, and within quoted
Newspeak sentences. No attempt was made to identify or
mark dates in other forms.
- div = 28
- foreign = 29
Only those Newspeak words which are
typographically distinguished in the printed version of the text
are marked as FOREIGN if they do not appear in some other tag where the
lang attribute provides the language information.
Latin words are also marked.
- head = 1
- hi = 103
The highlighting tag is used to mark words and phrases
which were typographically distinguished, and
for which no other more precise tag is applicable.
In most of these cases, such highlighting signifies
- item = 4
- l = 26
- list = 1
- mentioned = 256
- name = 1704
All names of people, places, organizations,
products, and events, are marked.
Person names in the genitive are not marked.
All names of countries and towns are marked with type=place.
Names of rivers and oceans are not marked.
While in the English version the word INGSOC is marked
with NAME LANG=NS, in the Bulgarian version it is marked
only if typographically distinguished from the rest of the text.
In the English version the word NEWSPEAK is marked with
NAME TYPE=LANGUAGE, while in the Bulgarian version it is marked
only if typographically distinguished from the
rest of the text.
- note = 8
- num = 34
Anything containing one or more digits (the characters 0-9) that is
not part of a date, and all roman numerals, are marked as a
number. In cases where a ratio is expressed (per cent, per thousand),
the entire phrase (e.g., "10 per cent") is marked as a number.
- p = 1321
- poem = 7
- ptr = 8
- q = 2203
The Q tag is used to mark quoted dialogue.
The attribute "broken=yes" is used when no sentence terminating punctuation
(either inside the Q itself or in the intervening text between two Qs)
appears between two dialogue fragments by the same speaker.
Q tags with a attribute of "type=MI" have been inserted
automatically after S insertion.
- quote = 34
QUOTE marks quotations from outside sources, including extensive
quotations from Winston's diary and Goldstein's treatise.
- s = 6649
S tags have been inserted automatically and then cleaned up by hand in
the locations (character offsets) provided by MTSeg version 1.3.1
using the Slovene resource files.
