In Wu, Andi, and Randall Tan. 2010. Cascadia Syntax Graphs of the New Testament: SBL Edition. Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press. a Context Menu on the Greek Lemma does not suggest a Bible Word Study. However, the Context Menu on a English gloss does suggest a BWS. This seems strange or backwards to me. Is this really intended and if so, why?

This offers the BWS when I make sure the lemma is selected on the left side of the context menu. Can you provide a specific example and screenshot?

It's valid to run a BWS on an English word.

But lemma is not offered on the left hand side of the menu - only selection.

That makes sense. You are right clicking on the Lexical Form, not the surface text (to which all the other data is attached). Only Lemmas or English words are supported in the BWS. Lexical words forms of original language words are not supported.

In other words, try clicking on column to the left.

Excuse me but what is a "lexical word form"? I know the distinction between manuscript and lemma, stem, or root but I've not seen lexical word form except as a synonym for lemma.

Ah, so the problem is that the "lexical form" column doesn't have a lemma reference associated with it.

I've written up a case for this.
