Re: VMs: Re: New VMS transcriptions
>>For any proposed new VMS transcriptions I would suggest these symbols to
>>A period '.' for an agreed full space, a comma ',' for an agreed half space,
>>a semi colon ';' for a disputed spacing and a colon ':' for paragraph end.
This is indeed a piece of information that needs to be included, and I've
troubled over it to some extent, especially finding a symbol to replace the
half-space. My proposal is the "dash" - to indicate possible connectivity
within the word.
I prefer transcriptions that can be sight-read as easily as possible, and
so there should be few characters that you would stumble over in your reading.
I like space for space, and I like GC's '-' versus a comma because it already
has the connotation of associating the "words". As my eyes get older the
difference between : and ; has decreased significantly, so I selfishly prefer
not to have their difference be significant.
