<normalization>

The element normalization specifies an alteration made to a source file to bring the transcription into conformity with standards or common expectations. This element is used typically for minor corrections, e.g., suppression of discretionary hyphenation. You should declare every change you have made to the source.

<normalization> is especially helpful in reference to nondigital sources, but it may be made also for digital sources, to declare global changes that would be cumbersome, difficult, or impossible to describe in <replace>.

See the section called “TAN keywords for types of normalizations (<normalization>)” for suggested IRI + name values for normalizations. For general discussion see the section called “Normalizing transcriptions”
