The Glossary Workflow is predicated upon the completion of the Text Alignment Workflow. Once alignment is successful and a text validated, a glossary can be constructed in READ from the Word List of a given edition. A glossary is an analysis stratum added to a substrate (i.e., the particular edition for which the glossary is being created) and forms the basis for lexeme analysis.
The Glossary Workflow follows a staged approach in order to ensure the integrity of data structures generated during the creation of a glossary. These stages progress from the fundamentals of managing a glossary in READ to the creation of a glossary, moving from simple non-compounded forms to complex compounds, to the advanced finessing of a glossary via lexeme analysis.
