Abbreviation partially expanded

a

expan (expansion) contains the expansion of an abbreviation.

ex (editorial expansion) contains a sequence of letters added by an editor or transcriber when expanding an abbreviation.

The characters that form the entire expansion of an abbreviation (including both the charaters that are present on the original support and those added by the editor) are marked up using expan.

In addition, the characters added by the editor (i.e. those characters that do not appear on the original support) are indicated with ex.

Resolved and unresolved abbreviations are treated differently; see Abbreviation not expanded at all for an explanation of how to mark up abbreviations for which the expansion is unknown.
