Bug: transliteration pop-up for Greek lemma has two transliteration choices. One has Greek accent over u while the other does not.

Hovering mouse over transliteration pop-up choices shows Bible Word Study ring (with one lemma having 0 results = Bug so would appreciate removal from pop-up choices)

Follow-up to thread => Are Semantic Roles in Clause Participant in Bible Word Study a summary?

Hi Keep Smiling,

A developer took a look at this and said it's not a bug, but is based upon your preferred Bibles. Here is what he said:

This is not a bug so much as a UI that isn't sufficient for communicating to the user that these are two distinct lemmas that come from separate analyses. The one without results is from the Rahlf's edition Lexham LXX. There are no results because your default English Bible doesn't have any words that are linked to Greek words in the Septuagint.

I hope this helps.

Curious about Rahlf's edition of Lexham LXX including Greek accent in English transliteration while many Logos resources have transliteration sans accent ?

Feels buggy for pop-up to show same original language lemma with different English transliterations.

It turns out that I was somewhat mistaken in what I passed on to Philana. It turns out that we do already have a case written up for this incorrect lemma. I don't have information on when or if that will be cleaned up, but I believe when it does, the specific problem here will go away.

Thanks plus curious if more original language lemma's have more than one English transliteration ? (reminds me of data analysis looking for surprising duplicates using SQL)
