Text Database: Guide to use

On opening the site, the user can select the number of text versions he/she wishes to have available

on the screen – and which text version should determine the ordering (i.e. sequence) of the text segments: mark  the circles alongside the wished-for texts (or remove for texts not wished for), and likewise tick for an ordering sequence.

Click thereafter on 'view'.

Once in the view mode, a new selection of texts and ordering can be obtained by a 'mouse over' on 'select' alongside the French (L2) segment.

If any text has footnotes, these can be read with a mouse over on the icon (notes). The French text L2 has both variants (L2-var) and notes in French (L2-notes), and central notes translated into English (L2-notes_E).

Note: to access (and download) a full text of any version: click on the underlined text name in the view/select menu

Note: the texts are treated as one homogenic chapter (1); click on 1 in the view/sort menu and a list of numbered segments will give instant access to any wished-for segment in the text.

Comments/suggestions, etc. should be sent to
