Concordancing using Tags (1)

Top  Previous  Next

Probably the first thing to do if your source text is tagged, is to let WordSmith know. To do this, in the main Controller, choose Settings | Adjust Settings        

 

adjust_settings        

 

then Tags and Mark-up.         

 

controller_tag_settings        

               

If you're using the British National Corpus, choose it within Custom settings as shown above. Then choose your Entity file if you want to avoid seeing eacute; instead of and similar things, and press Load:         

 

tags_to_translate_found.         

 

So far, we have told the Controller that it is to ignore all tags beginning and ending with angle brackets (< >), to translate a few entity references to symbols like % and ", and to cut out the header of each text (up to </teiHeader>). That'll do for a start.
