First Lexicon: Abbott-Smith

Post by Jonathan Robie » November 2nd, 2013, 12:40 pm

Patrick Durusau is going to complete the editing of the Abbott-Smith lexicon, based on:

1. The work done by Daniel's group:

2. The reverse-engineered text from DSAW:

ODF source:

XQuery:

3. Rigaudon scans of Abbott-Smith:

If he needs another set of eyes, I'm willing to proof it. Can you tell us a little about Patrick Durusau?

Great! I'll introduce you to each other by email. We are using git for source code control.

Patrick Durusau is an XML guru who has been in the SGML / XML community for a very long time, I have known him since 1995 or 1996, and he is a delightful person. He was the technical lead for OSIS, a format used in many biblical software packages, and is the editor and one of the chairs of OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (ODF), an office suite interchange format that is used for a great deal of document exchange.

Patrick was also the Director of Research and Development at SBL until he resigned in 2005 to become a freelance consultant. His biblical languages background is strongest in Hebrew and Semitic languages. He has done a lot of editing, and has an editor's eye.

So you can imagine that we are extremely pleased to have him working with us at biblicalhumanities.org.
