This presentation introduces working recommendations for encoding etymological information in TEI P5 dictionaries. Herein an overview of a reformed package of elements attributes and structures is given for a revamping of TEI as per the ongoing project seeking a general overhaul of TEI dictionaries at INRIA France. Central to this is the need to create an LMF compatible set of TEI structures which is a long needed step forward in the field of lexical markup.
This presentation demonstrates ways to encode information that is central to linguistics but have not previously been encoded in any known TEI project such as: metaphor, metonymy, phonological changes, to name a few. Additionally demonstrated are structures meant to improve upon the existing ways that lexicographical resources are encoded in TEI such as etymological dictionaries.
