MELD Manual

The purpose of this manual is to provide users with the practical information needed for making use of the corpus.

It describes the basic terminology and transcription conventions of the MELD corpus, as well as the presentation and specific conventions of the three additional flavours (that is, the Reading, Diplomatic and Concordance versions).  A more general discussion of the thinking behind the corpus, and of its principles of compilation and classification, is provided in the MELD Introduction.
