Relative Clauses

The relative converter ⲉⲧ is not considered referential. In relative clauses with explicit subject pronouns, those pronouns are annotated as usual:

ⲙ [ⲡ ⲙⲁ ⲉⲧ [ϥ] ⲛϩⲏⲧ [ϥ]] - The place that he is in (it)

Note that this results in the second pronoun pointing back to the span that contains it - this is allowed in WebAnno.

Expletive pronouns

Correlative/expletive pronouns are not annotated as entities at all:

  • ⲁ [ϥ] ϫⲱ ⲙⲙⲟ ⲥ - he said: - ⲥ is not annotated

No reference inside compounds

In morphologically complex items containing a verb inside a larger token, that noun cannot be annotated:

  • ⲁ ϥ ϫⲓⲃⲁⲡⲧⲓⲥⲙⲁ - he received-baptism (baptism cannot be annotated as a markable, since it's part of an incorporated verb 'to baptize')

Singular noun referring to a group of people

  • ⲡ ⲙⲏⲏϣⲉ - The crowd: is marked with “person”

Dynamic Passive

  • ⲥⲉ ⲕⲁ ⲛⲉⲕ ⲛⲟⲃⲉ - Either “They forgive your sins” or “Your sins are forgiven”: Always annotate the subject (ⲥⲉ) as an entity.
