Due to the limitations of the calculations performed in Excel and for the sake of clarity of presentation, two more categories describing the units were added to the database:
- attribution locale and group – the category aggregates the locale and group tags of all the characters to whom the traditions in a given unit are attributed;
- actor locale and group – the category aggregates the locale and group tags of all the characters appearing as actors in a given unit.
The category indicates a biblical literary character being the protagonist of the narrative. If it speaks about the exact actors, the specific character from the biblical list is provided – otherwise the unit is not annotated in this category.
