Table B
Listed here are compound words that fall within the line in the
Centennial edition of As Good as a Comedy and Paddy McGann
but whose intended form is ambiguous because they are hyphenated
at the end of a line in the copy-texts. Where other examples of the
same compound have been found within the line in the copy-texts,
the form most frequently used has been adopted. Where no other
examples of the same compound could be found within the line in
the copy-texts, the Centennial edition has attempted to adopt the
form of the compound which is most consistent with the copy-texts'
handling of similar compounds and with Simms's handling of the
same compound in other writings of approximately the same date.
