<sp> Contains an individual speech in a performance text, or a passage presented as such in a prose or verse text.
In addition to global attributes and those inherited from chunk:
who identifies the speaker of the part by supplying an IDREF value.
Datatype: IDREFS
Values: The values used are derived from the id attribute on the <role> elements in the cast list or from a list of the participants.
Default: #IMPLIED
   <speaker>The reverend Doctor Opimiam</speaker>
   <p>I do not think I have named a single unpresentable fish.</p>
   <speaker>Mr Gryll</speaker>
   <p>Bream, Doctor: there is not much to be said for bream.</p>
   <speaker>The Reverend Doctor Opimiam</speaker>
   <p>On the contrary, sir, I think there is much to be said for him.
In the first place....</p>
   <p>Fish, Miss Gryll &mdash; I could discourse to you on fish by the hour:
but for the present I will forbear...</p>

The who attribute on this element may be used either in addition to the <speaker> element or as an alternative.

This element is taken over from the TEI scheme (see http://www.tei-c.org/P4X/ref-SP.html). However, its content model has been redefined without the <seg> element, to avoid interference with the declaration of <seg> as a global element.
