Will there be made more Greek & Hebrew Dictionaries/Lexicons available for the word study section on the iPad and linked to the word-study? At the moment I can only see 2 Greek dictionaries/lexicons which are LOUW-NIDA and DBL GREEK and one Hebrew dictionary which is BROWN DRIVER BRIGGS...

Currently not all of our books are available for reading on the mobile applications. However, you should also have access to the Enhanced Strong's Lexicon. 

Do you see that in your library?

As far as which resources are pulled up for the Word Study guide, make sure your resources are properly prioritized as per here: http://wiki.logos.com/Prioritizing 

 

Thanks,

Hello Hunter, Thank you for your reply, but I checked what you were saying. I do have enhanced strings lexicon in my library including other lexicons like VINES, TDNT etc... I have also done the prioritization on my desktop as per your link. But when I select a word on my iPad in the bible and i choose LOOK UP and then BIBLE WORD STUDY in order to look at that Greek word it takes me to the word study page but then on top it only shows 3 lines. the 1st is the AUDIBLE version of that Greek word, then below that the 2nd line is LOUW-NIDA and then the 3rd line is DBL GREEK.... I fail to see VINES connected to my word study and also ENHANCED STRONGS LEXIXON or TDNT or any other resources, even though they are in my iPad library... If I click on my DBL then once the book is opened then there is links to the STRONGS and TDNT for example: "Str 1097" and "TDNT 1.689" but that is all, it also fails to have Vines...  

But when I work on my desktop and then when I right click on a word in the bible and I choose "LEMMA" then it throws out for me all my prioritized lexicons and dictionaries like VINES, ENHANCED, TDNT, DBL, BROWNS etc....

Unless if this feature is not yet available on iPad? If so, will it become available in near future, because I find iPad logos to be brilliant, especially the split screen option and the passage Guide has thumps up,  but for me the only thing which is lacking is to do a proper greek/hebrew word study with all my resources, which limits me big time to use LOGOS purely on my iPad when I am traveling for ministry....

Thank you so much for your help...

I know it’s not exactly the same topic but the short definitions displayed by Louw-Nida and the DBL are of such close results that it would seem natural that the defaults would be a little more diversified. Please see my link post. Also I don't see that prioritized resources has any effect on it, since I have manipulated them several times with no change.

Hey Anthony, thanks for your comment. I see what you mean and that is exactly what I tried as well. the prioritization doesn't affect it at all. I hope and trust that they will work on this in the next update. If I can have all my dictionaries like VINES, EDNT, DBL, BDB, TDNT etc in there then it will be great and then this LOGOS would be really worth while. The only main part which is lacking now is the GREEK and HEBREW study in the WORD STUDY section... I would also like it if they can add more english dictionaries for whenever we do an ENGLISH word search, above the default Meriam Webster dictionary.... FINGERS CROSSED THAT IS GETS UPDATED SOON! :)

Has anyone heard an update on this? One of the features that makes another product so helpful is that it allows easy access to Vine's, Mounce, etc. from a word highlight. I have those resources in my Logos library but can't access them from Bible Word Study on the iPad. If there is a solution I'm not aware of, I'd love the help. 

 

Thanks.

If there is a solution
I don't have a solution, but a work-around is to create a collection of lexicons in Logos on your desktop and then go to the reference box at the top of the Bible Word Study on the iPad and press the Greek word.  Tap select all and then copy.  Then go to basic search and tap in the box to select your collection and then press (or double tap)  the Find box and tap Paste.  Then tap Search on the keyboard and look for the lexicon you want, preferably with the lemma being a headword in the lexicon.

Hey Jerry, I understand what you are saying, but that is a lot of manual "work around" if you quickly want to do a word study - I love logos, but I firmly believe they need to improve this part of the APP! It will be so much more beneficial... If any administrators are reading this, are you guys aware of any updates which might include this request of ours?

Sometimes fixes like this require additional tagging in the resources, which if that is the case may take some time.  I rely on Bdag a lot, which is available and is an excellent lexicon.

Most definitely. Adding more lexica would make the app so much more useful and valuable for studying.

So is BDAG fully available on the Ipad App - without additional tagging/workaround, etc.?

That's great!  How about the full LSJ?  Anyone know?

This is an issue that has festered for FAR too long. If someone has dictionaries that are available on a mobile device, they should come up in the word study guides. Very very few English and Greek dictionaries come up. It has been years since the iPhone app was made and it really needs to be fixed. In addition, Logos for iPhone should be able to allow the user to input a collection with a passage guide or a word study guide.

What is keeping these suggestions from being implemented?

Yes I would also add, they should work off-line.

I have the full LSJ and it does appear on BWS on the IPad.

How many links to lexicons do you have in BWS on the iPad?  I have the Platinum package and have three (BDAG,Louw-Nida and DBL Greek).  I didn't know if this number is a built in limit or not.  (BTW I found that if I link to DBL Greek I can follow links to TDNTA, TDNT and Enhanced Strong's.)

Hi Jerry - 

I have 3 (for Greek) - BDAG, LSJ and Louw-Nida, which follows the prioritisation sequence I have set up on the desktop.  They are the same three that appear by default in BWS on the desktop (although you can then click for more on the link in the desktop BWS).  DBL appears as the first of the "extra" lexicons on the desktop BWS.  I am also on Platinum, but additionally bought BDAG and LSJ to enhance my study.

My favorite Greek Lexicon  Liddell and Scott works well on the  iPad. Not sure it is linked to word study though ...
