@cert

The attribute cert states how certain an agent is of the data governed by the parent element, expressed as a real number from 0 (no certainty) to 1 (completely certainty).

This attribute is taken into account before all other attributes except @claimant. That is, @cert is to be interpreted to mean: "@claimant has @cert confidence about the following data:...."

Values of @cert amplify. Any @cert will be multiplied against any other values of @cert in a given context. For example, if an <l> and an <m> in a TAN-A-lm file each have a certainty of 0.5, then the lexico-morphological combination of the two is 0.25. In a TAN-A-tok file, if an <align> has a certainty of 0.6 and a child <tok> has a certainty of 0.3, then that <tok>'s actual certainty is 0.18.

This attribute is inheritable. See the section called “Attribute inheritability and priority”
