Luc, Paolo,

The typos in PROV-N document I found are detailed below.
Best regards,


A full stop is needed at the end of the 2nd bullet point.

In the last two expressions, the identifier (i) was given without a prefix, which I felt a bit inconsistent with the previous examples. However, I understand that this might be intentional.
Same for the following examplesm e.g. start, end, etc.

"..., and [ex:param="a"] are optional attributes." - singular here? Same for several other examples (Examples 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, ...) Please check.

It'd be more natural to place Example 26 (https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/prov/raw-file/default/model/releases/REC-prov-n-20130430/Overview.html#example_26) before Example 25, right after the sentence about prov:Plan (and perhaps use ex:pl1 in Example 25).

The first row in the table is incorrect id -> identifier (i.e. not optional)

"...as an an entity..." - delete the extra "an"

"...more permissive syntax then XML..." -> "than"

"Given its status of house keeping construct..." - "house-keeping" (to be consistent with the previous occurrence of the term). "Housekeeping" is a valid word by the way.

Commas suggested around "for instance" in the last sentence.
