|Namespace||N/A||N/A||Naming Authority, Collection||The intent of the CTS namespace was to serve as a naming authority for a set of CTS URN identifiers in order to be able to declare uniqueness of all textgroup identifiers only within the scope of a given namespace. In practice, this has been interpreted mainly as a Collection or Corpus identifier.|
|Textgroup||N/A||N/A||Collection, Author/logical grouping||an identifier for any group of texts that are conventionally cited together in the naming authority’s tradition|
|Version||WrittenWork, Edition||Expression||Digital Edition||According to LAWD, an “Edition” is a published version of a WrittenWork; I think this might correspond more closely to the CTS concept of “Version” than just WrittenWork because a CTS Version is a distinct publication of an expression of a Conceptual Work|
|Edition||Written Work, Edition||Expression||Digital Edition||a CTS Edition is a type of a CTS version, with the restriction that it must be an expression of a work in the original source language of the work|
|Translation||Translation||Expression||Digital Edition||a CTS Edition is a type of a CTS version, with the restriction that it must be an expression of a work in a different language than the original source language of the work|
|Exemplar||n/a||Item||Derived Resource||The HMT has been using Exemplars to represent specific derivations of a CTS version created for the purpose of analysis and unambiguous citation at the level of the token. E.g. a tokenization by morphemes. This might be more of a derivation than an interpretation but it has elements of both.|
|Passage||Citation||N/A||Resource Fragment||a CTS Passage identifies a singe citable section of a work - it might be a single “node” or a range of “nodes”|
