I recently created a word list for the Hebrew vocabulary for the OT book of Nahum. Actually, it was generated using Logos' word list feature. Which bring's me to my question: How is this list generated? More specifically, where does the program get the English gloss for a Hebrew word from? Does it pull the gloss from a specific lexicon? Does the program scan all lexicons and translations and put forth the gloss it deems most accurate? I did notice that next to some of the Lemmas there is a number. That number indicates a secondary, tertiary, and so on lexical entry for a word. For example: 2 מַשָּׂא "pronouncement"; this indicates that this is a secondary usage for the word מַשָּׂא, and sure enough, when I look in the Dictionary of Classical Hebrew, "pronouncement" is listed with the secondary usage. Now, I do have the DCH set in the 1st position of my prioritized resources for Hebrew lexicons; so does the program just pull the gloss from there? Any insight pertaining to this would be helpful and appreciated. Thanks.

I believe it is generated from a Logos internal database but I don't know for sure, and don't know any specifics.
