1690 July Fourth Time of Year
1752 Sunday Time of Year

This should probably go under day of the week in col. 2, but it does not exist. My thinking is that there might be days that are more pronounced in Faulkner, notably the Sabbath and Wednesday prayer. The specific example is from Monk.

1370 Farce Tone
1386 Absurdist Tone
2660 Shift Tone
2743 Overwrought Tone

This label is as subjective as it is possibly contentious, yet I have created for those instances in which the tone appears too highfalutin, philosophical, or otherwise "fancy" in relation to the subject matter at hand. The specific example, is from The Reivers when Lucius Priest constantly reflects on his younger self in mock-epic fashion to describe his battles with "Virtue". JB

1308 Dots Typography/Orthography

This is for the occasions when Faulkner uses a series of dots as a feature of his prose - i.e. ". . ." or ". . . . . ." We can't call these dots ellipses, because they do not represent anything being left out of the text. The most disconcerting use of this technique is in "Miss Zilphia Gant." SR

Faithfulness as a general virtue, synonymous with fidelity and/or loyalty (unless others think those merit a separate keyword entry). Wasn't sure if this should go here or go also or instead under Actions > Emotions. JBP
