I'm looking for more info on what Sean Boisen was talking about in the livestream this morning with new lexical work, but I'm not finding any mention of it on the website. I think whatever it was, they had completed the Greek, and the Hebrew (OT) work was forthcoming. I know it's there (a video or something), but must not be making the connection with what they are advertising as the new features.

Thanks!

Hi David.

Sean was talking about the "Lexham Research Lexicons." We have volumes for the Greek NT, Hebrew Bible, Aramaic portions of the Hebrew Bible, and LXX.

On these, I wrote a short post for my own personal blog that might be helpful: https://rickbrannan.com/2020/10/26/logos-9-lexham-research-lexicons/

On a similar note, where can we find more about the Greek Grammar Ontology resource?

The product page doesn't give me enough info to determine if it's worthwhile to me.

Here is a screen shot of the Ontology Resource. Hope you find it helpful in your decision process :).

Thanks abondservant.

This resource gives a basic definition of various grammatical terms and concepts, then links to the relevant portions of the resources I already own?

Seems to, the linking is a lot more extensive than what is shown in the screen shot, and it also links several that I don't own (see the closed padlock).

It has a big table of contents, I didn't look through it closely, i jumped part way down the page and clicked one at random.

Is there a concept you'd like me to show screen shots of?

Yes, it links to 260 grammatical concepts across about a dozen of the most important Greek grammars in Logos. From the Introduction:

The Greek Grammar Ontology does for Greek grammars what the Bible
reference system has done for commentaries, journals, and other
biblical studies resources: it links directly to relevant discussions
of a linguistic topic in multiple grammars.
The Greek Grammar Ontology is a resource that organizes content from
many Greek grammars into a structured hierarchy with standardized
concepts (an ontology). It can be time consuming, even with the help
of Logos Editions, to make a study of Greek when consulting grammars.
Even with the most organized grammars, content can be spread across
several sections of the resource. For example, information on the
definite article may have its own section in a grammar, but can also
occur within sections discussing the infinitive, the participle,
substantives, etc. The Grammar Ontology collects all the content
associated with a grammatical concept into one place. If a grammar has
something to say on the definite article, it can be found in the
corresponding section of the Grammar Ontology.
The ontology itself is a hierarchical categorization of the
grammatical topics in Greek grammar. The hierarchy captures the topic
interrelationships in a tree-like structure, with more general concepts
at the top, and more specific concepts below them.
In addition to the hierarchy, the Greek Grammar Ontology provides a
brief definition for each grammatical concept, based on a broad
linguistic perspective. In some cases, Greek-specific
information is provided in a definition, but even these are intended to
be broad and introductory. There are also annotations of resources
that provide more definitions or encyclopedic information about the
concept.

Thank you Sean and abondservant. You both have given me helpful information in my purchasing decision.
