A rigorously defined orthography for texts in the archaic Attic alphabet.


  • implement the MID Orthography interface, with semantic tokenization of text in Attic Greek
  • uses Unicode in form :NFKC whererever codepoints are defined
  • mimics print publication practice insupplementing missing characters with the ASCII code point sumarized below.
Code pointMeaning
hrough breathing
êε with circumflex
ôο with circuflex

In the Attic alphabet, all iotas are adscript. There is no character for smooth breathing: the aspirate (rough breathing) is explicitly marked, so that word-initial vowels are unaspirated by default.
