I find myself periodically using the morphology charts interactive tool to see the different forms of verbs, especially when I'm surprised by one.

It seems the fastest way for me to do this is to select the verb in the text, right-click, select lemma, copy, then paste into the morphology chart box. Is there a faster way (am I missing something?)

It would be nice if I could open the morphology chart directly from the right-click context menu with the lemma selected, but I can't find that on the menu.

Thanks in advance!

Mike

A few options:

  1. Open a Bible Word Study Guide and link it to your Bible that you use.
  2. Click on a word in the Bible and the BWS will generate.
  3. Under lemma you will find a link to the Morph Charts

Or you can open an information window an click on a word to populate and then open the BWS by clicking on the lemma. Hope this helps.

I have often made the suggestion in the past that they would add the ability to jump directly the morphology chart from the right-click menu but alas, they have yet to make that improvement. 

I think the way you're doing it is the fastest as long as you have a shortcut to the morph chart interactive. It would be faster if you could sound out the lemma and enter the transliterated spelling in the box. But if you don't already know the lemma you're looking for you'd still need to right-click to see it.

As the other user said, you can also get there through the bible word study guide.

I disagree. John's suggestion of putting a BWS in a linkset with your Bible will definitely be faster if you wish to do it more than a "one-off". Once BWS and a Bible are in a linkset, a single click on the English word will update the BWS to that lemma and one more click will open the Morph charts (two clicks will be all it takes).

Yes I've added this setup now to my daily reading of the NA28.
