There are a number of grammatical and syntactic categories that are useful when learning a language or closely analyzing a passage that are not tagged in Logos. However, people ask forum how to search for them on the forums so that I know people have an interest. I would like to be able to add lines to the interlinear to add these features and have them appear in  interlinears/reverse interlinears and to be able to share them with others as a Note(type) document. Items that come to mind: type of dative by use, verbal valency, verbal aspect ...

Except for valency, which is fairly fixed for any particular verb, the other categories demand quite a bit of (trained) human tagging.

If you're suggesting that somebody tag them and allow display, I'm all for it. Otherwise they would be blank fields or worse, some mechanical tagging riddled with error.

Lee, I am suggesting that the user be able to tag them for passages for which they personally need the information. And that for teaching purposes they be shareable. In many cases a student might merely wish to transfer the information in their texts to accessible in the Bible text and do no independent thinking.
