Subject: More Errors in the ETC Riverside Shakespeare
As many of you may already know, the file RIVERSID ERRORS on the
SHAKSPER Fileserver contains a listing of errors I have found in
the Electronic Text Corporation WordCruncher Riverside Shakespeare.
This is the first addendum to the file, consisting of eight cases
of mistaken punctuation: in every case, two commas have been
substituted for quotation marks. (And in one case, the speech
prefix has been truly garbled as a result).
I ask you all once more to report any errors you may find in the
Riverside Shakespeare text, so that they can be added to the
RIVERSID ERRORS file on the SHAKSPER Fileserver. Naturally,
any errors found in that list should also be reported to me.
