Idioms

Description:

The following list identifies the idioms identified in the corpus; an idiom is a particular defined method of using a particular vocabulary, when it may be used in more than one way. Some vocabularies are designed to reduce such variation as far as possible; others tolerate or even encourage it.

For example, with the TEI vocabularies the use of next and prev attributes, of part attributes or of virtual elements are three different idioms — three different ways of using the same vocabulary to represent the same phenomena.

At the moment, the list here is just a sort of starter set.
