    The Greek Grammar Ontology is an independent resource. Many of the concepts in the Ontology can be navigated to through Factbook. But mostly, it is a manual reference.

  • Re: Figures of Speech tags question and suggestion

    Maybe this isn't spelled out clearly enough in the documentation, but the classification used in the Figurative Language data set is not derived from literary/poetic theory. It is based on linguistics, and the cognitive mechanisms that are a part of language. Here is the definition for Metonymy from the Lexham Figurative Language of the Bible Glossary

    The examples from Ephesians 6:19 We tag the phrase ἀνοίξει τοῦ στόματός as a metonymy since it is the more concrete action that accompanies producing speech standing in for the more abstract concept of speaking. We tag εὐαγγελίου

  • Re: Attn Faithlife: Tagging Inconsistencies in Daniel

    Thank you for the references. I'll look into the references surrounding the "kings of Persia" further. The issue with the prince of Greece is due to it being a single reference. We didn't create specific id's for referents that weren't mentioned at least 5 times.

  • Re: Attn Faithlife: Tagging Inconsistencies in Daniel

    As far as I can tell, the current annotation of these referents fits with others readings . The "kings of Persia" are entities who Daniel was left with, seemingly people who are actual rulers of the area. And the "prince of Greece" is also annotated as an angel because the term (שַׂ֣ר) prince is commonly used to refer to angelic beings. In v 21, Michael

  • Re: Clause search for a person versus Bible search for a person

    Yes. MJ is right. Clause Search is limited in the results that it will return. Only Arguments of the main verb will be returned as results in a Clause Search query. So, your examples with Moses in the dative case are instances where the main verb takes a third argument in the dative case (typically this will be an indirect object). The examples with

  • Re: Clause search for a person versus Bible search for a person

    The tagging is based on the grammar of the Greek, not the English translation. For example, in your earlier example Mk 7:10 vs Matt 15:4 there are different speakers listed. Mt 15:4 ὁ γὰρ θεὸς εἶπεν· Τίμα τὸν πατέρα καὶ τὴν μητέρα

  • Re: Errors in Lexham Hebrew Bible (LHB)

    In the list of words there are several things going on. ( אבק ) is listed as sense 2 probably because it is the second sense listed in HALOT, but sense 1 doesn't occur in the biblical text so we don't have one, which is confusing. This is also the case for ( אבר ) the first sense listed in HALOT doesn’t occur in a biblical text, but the second

  • Re: Clause Search Query

    Take the example of the entity Nazareth. Nazareth is a place, that Logos has tagged in Bible texts, so it is searchable. If you run a bible search for the place 'Nazareth' the results will return every instance (even pronominal references). However, clause search doesn't return every instance of a tagged entity. In Matt 21:11 the noun Nazareth is part

  • Re: Errors in Lexham Hebrew Bible (LHB)

    As far as I understand what you're asking, I think the issue has to do with the way our data is structured. Lexicons and other resources suggest homographs, but unless a particular word actually occurs within one of our tagged texts, it will not be searchable. Are there instances where one of these homographs occurs within a bible text that doesn't

  • Re: Clause Search Query

    This is an issue with the way Clause Search works. The clause search feature will only return results for entities that are tagged as arguments of the verb and the verbs themselves. So, the entity needs to fit into a grammatical category (Subject, Object, etc.) or a functional role category (Agent, Patient, etc.) In the Mt 21:11 instance Nazareth modifies

    Your right. I didn't look at the agent tagging. I added this tag, and it should show up after the next update cycle.

  • Re: BUG or not?

    The angel of the Lord is a specific title in theological terms. Not every angel within the OT is seen as the Angel of the Lord. That is a role reserved for angels specifically referred to as ( מַלְאַ֣ךְ יְהוָ֑ה ) where the divine name, the Tetragrammaton, is used as the modifier. The angel in Judges 13:10 is not tagged as 'Angel of the Lord' because

  • Re: What is the definition of aphtarot/aftarot as related to Hebrew manuscripts?

    Yes. Using transliteration leads to those types of problems. -ah is the feminine singular and -ot is the plural ending for some Hebrew nouns.
