Annotations on some tiers can be subdivided into smaller units on a depending tier. In this way, you can for example break up a sentence into different words (or words into morphemes, etc.), as in the following illustration:
To divide an annotation into smaller units on a depending tier, do the following:
In the Timeline or Interlinear Viewer, click on the annotation that you want to subdivide. It appears in a dark blue frame.
Do one of the following:
Right-click on the selected annotation. A pull-down menu appears. Click on eitheror on to subdivide the annotation.
Or click onmenu. Then click on either or on to subdivide the annotation.
If you click on, the original annotation is divided and the new annotation is inserted to its left (as in the illustration below). If you click on , it is inserted to its right.
This option is only available for those tiers that are assigned to the stereotypes Time Subdivision and Symbolic Subdivision.
An annotation is always subdivided into two units. If you need further subdivisions, repeat the steps above.
