CELT: Corpus of Electronic Texts
The present text covers the author's preface, notes by Alfred Nutt, and even pages 2 to 102 of the volume.
Text has been checked and proof-read twice.
The electronic text represents the edited text. In Hyde' edition, the acute accent on words such as mé, t(h)ú, ó, nó, etc. is sometimes omitted; this was rectified. Long eu such as in sgeul, beul was left unmarked. In other cases in the printed edition long vowels are sometimes accented where this is not the norm today, as in síad, rómhad, ceól etc. Corrections to typographical errors are marked corr sic="" resp="", with the editor's ID marked. The word folk-lorist has been changed to folklorist.
Direct speech is marked q.
Soft hyphens are silently removed. When a hyphenated word (hard or soft) crosses a page-break or line-break, this break is marked after the completion of the hyphenated word.
div0=the group of tales; div1=the individual tale. Page-breaks are marked pb n="".
Personal names in the preface are tagged.
This text uses the DIV1 element to represent the section.
