I'm currently trying to reset the numbering of my examples in my appendix. I'm using the covington package, and my problem is that the examples of the appendix follow the numbering of the previous examples that are in the text. How can I change this?

This is what I have:

\section{Stimulus material}\label{Stimulus}
\subsection{Test stimuli}
Some text here
\gll El vecino escucha que el padre del ni\~{n}o toca el piano
The neighbor hears that the father$_{N1}$ {of the} boy$_{N2}$ plays the piano


What I would like is the example to start in (1), and also to be able to include two sub-examples, so (1.1) and (1.2).


That package uses the same counter for examples as is normally used for equations. You can restart it like this:



  Main example

% Restart example counter:
  Appendix example

(Note that this is a complete example that you can compile yourself to see the result. That's the kind of MWEs we like in questions on this site.)

  • Thank you very much for the answer. And I'll do my best next time I post a question (I tend to assume too much sometimes, so I do not write everything). – Nalerive Apr 28 '14 at 15:10
