are both used (e.g., vir and uir). Enclitics such as -que, -ne, -ve, and -cum have not been cut (e.g., expect populique as well as populiq). Final i often appears as j (e.g., adulterij). Wildcard characters or Boolean operators can help detect such anomalies. One may enter [vu]ir or vir|uir or populi.* to achieve the desired results.
Words that contain accented characters must be entered as such; however, in order to enter words without having to pay attention to accents simply turn on CapsLock and type in all uppercase. This is best since accentuation is not always consistent (for example, by entering GALATEA one finds the following forms in the database: Galatea, Galateà, and Galatèa).
The Latin texts, especially, are heavily abbreviated. Abbreviations that take the form of one or more letters and a superscripted bar in the sources, are rendered in this database as the respective letter(s) followed by a tilde. For example, mutatio~ibus stands for "mutationibus" but must be searched as mutatioibus, since the tilde is a non-searchable character.
Punctuation and Full-Text Searching:
Hyphens: Hyphens act as word separators. Thus, when searching
hyphenated expressions one should treat them as separate words
the hyphen (e.g., if searching for ante-chamber, type in ante
Apostrophes: One must include apostrophes when searching words
apostrophes and one must insert a space after apostrophes since in
this database apostrophes act as word separators (e.g., only by typing
quel' palazzo will one find "quel'palazzo"). English possessives and
contractions must be entered with a space after the apostrophe (e.g.,
to search for "Vasari's" or "can't" enter vasari' s and can'
Ampersand: The ampersand (&) is not a searchable character.
Avoid phrase pearches where an ampersand may be used as a conjunction and
realize that &c must be searched as simply c.
Formatting and Display:
Character Display: At this time, ancient Greek characters
display without accents, but are searchable in UTF-8.
Results Display: Please be advised that, when searching for
more terms within the same paragraph, the concordance report expands
amount of text displayed to include all of the search terms in the
paragraph. At times this text can be several screens in length since
paragraph divisions in documents in this database are very far
Notes: There are notes throughout Art Theorists of the Italian Renaissance.
PhiloLogic notes never interfere when searching the text to which they
refer. To search only the text within notes enter Note in the Text Object Field Tag and then enter keyword(s) in the "Search in Texts for:" box.
Images: There are several images throughout the database. Most
displayed as inline images once the user pulls up any level of context
(e.g., page, paragraph, or section), but not from a first-level
