    "Manuscription" is a word:

    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/manuscription

    and it appears twice in the chapter, so I suspect this is not a typo (although it may be confusing and unnecessary). Can someone who remembers the history of this file comment?

     
  • also:

    Guidelines/en/MS-ManuscriptDescription.xml
    /div/div[3]/div[5]/p[2]

    manuscription
    =>
    manuscript

     
  • In the context, I don't see that anything else but "manuscript" is intended. If the TEI has a whole "Module for Manuscription Description", why is it not mentioned elsewhere? A locus "is used to reference a single location within a manuscription" makes some sense, I guess, but it is in any case an awfully stilted way of expression.

    I agree, but I just want to make sure we don't step on the toes of a true expert for whom "manuscription" has a precise meaning that is especially apposite in this context.

    I have corrected both occurrences to "manuscript". When we have "text bearing objects" or whatever we'll need to review all this vocabulary again anyway.
