I'm slightly confused by the description and model of the
<geogFeat> element. It is described as an element to tag the term for a geographical feature within a
<geogName>. The latter element is often used in transcription, e.g. to tag a river named in the primary text, and its content model is therefore macro.phraseSeq, as such names may be abbreviated, damaged, corrected, regularized, contain words and other names, etc.
It would seem natural--and I have a colleague who would like--to be able to tag the term for the geaographical feature in the transcribed text as well, for example:
<geogName>ἡ τοῦ Σκαμάνδρου <geogFeat>πηγή</geogFeat></geogName>
The <geogFeat>source</geogFeat> of the (River) Skamander)
But the content model of
<geogFeat> is only macro.xtext (i.e. text and
<g>), so if there is any editorial intervention or description inside this word, is cannot be tagged.
Is this a corrigible error (that is, make
<geogFeat>'s content match up with
<geogName> etc.), or do people think that this element is only for use in the
<teiHeader>, and should never be used in transcription? If the latter, then we should make this explicitly clear in the element spec, because currently users have no way to know they should not use this element in a tagged transcription of the primary text.
