TEI tagging of the field and transcription notebooks belonging to Alexander Carmichael (1832-1912) folklorist, antiquarian and exciseman, held at Edinburgh University Archives, ref. GB 237 Coll-97 CW1, 7, 87, 89, 90, 104-117, 119, 120, 122, 126f, 126g, 150, 152, 154 and 178. This major undertaking, processing nearly half a million words of recordings made over half a century, is notable for the innovative use of TEI tags to represent hitherto undescribed textual features.
