Module 3: Prose

3. Semantics

Most encoders of prose want to encode more than just the document structure. Dates, names, places, events, organisations, titles of books, movies, and plays, for instance, frequently appear in prose and may need to be encoded. The TEI Guidelines propose specific elements for all these features. A separate TEI by Example tutorial on these elements and their use can be found in Module 1: Common Structure, Elements, and Attributes
