Hello!

I'm not sure what forum to put this in so if there is a better one, please let me know.

I've been learning about text blocks or units of discourse in Hebrew specifically about vav and asyndeton.  (Actually from this class: https://www.logos.com/product/117885/mobile-ed-bi205-old-testament-exegesis-understanding-and-applying-the-old-testament )

Is there a way in Logos to be able to see these chains or blocks?  That is apart from actually being able to read Hebrew?

Thanks

Excellent class BTW!

I doubt that you'd be able to accomplish this apart from knowing basic Hebrew grammar. However, resources such as the Lexham Discourse Hebrew Bible and the respective dataset (to help you see it in an English Bible) will bring some of these aspects to the surface (at least how some units of text relate to other units, and therefore if some are subordinate, you can delineate blocks). 

For example...

Here is an example using the dataset to display it in an English Bible (you must either purchase this dataset or be a Faithlife Connect subscriber to have this)

Thanks, James!

I do have the discourse features so I'll start using them with the layout you have here.  At some point, I need to learn basic Hebrew.  I know basic Greek but Hebrew is altogether different.  I at least need to learn the alphabet and start pronouncing things to be able to find some of these cues. 

I guess even as the course says, nothing really compares to being able to go into the original languages.  I agree, the course is really good!
