    Sections 1.14 and 1.15, Section 2.7.1

    Sections 1.14 and 1.15 describe the design and composition of this Corpus in detail.
    Please see Section 2.7.1 for more information.
    How should I read Sections 1.14 and 1.15, Section 2.7.1?

    Re: Sections 1.14 and 1.15, Section 2.7.1

    Hello, sitifan. I'm a corporate trainer and document specialist, and I use this all the time. Here is what to do.

    For Sections 1.14 and 1.15, you would look for section 1 first, then you would look at the subsections (smaller divisions of the section) of section 1 until you got to subsections 14 and 15.

    For Section 2.7.1, you would first find section 2, then within that section you would find subsection 7. Within subsection 7, you would look for sub-subsection 1.

    This is often called "Outline Form." Here's a picture of how it works:

    Section 1
    -----Subsection 1
    -----Subsection 2
    ----------Sub-subsection 1
    ----------Sub-subsection 2
    -----Subsection 3
    ----------Sub-subsection 1
    Section 2
    -----Subsection 1
    ----------Sub-subsection 1
    -----Subsection 2

    And so on.

    Re: Sections 1.14 and 1.15, Section 2.7.1

    Can I read "Sections 1.14 and 1.15; Section 2.7.1" as "Sections one point fourteen and one point fifteen; Section two point seven point one"?

    sitifan, that is what we do in our office. If you want to be formally correct, you would say "Section 1, subsection 14." In some legal offices they say "Section 2, sub 7, subsub 1."
