These days I am reading several Latin and Greek resources from the Perseus set. I like the fact that there these texts are in Logos. However, unfortunately, the tagging is not that great. It is many times a list with all the possibilties. Several times there is much more to see, but the screen is not big enough to show it. So I can't even see all the options.

Also this tagging makes morph searching rather difficult.

It looks like that Loeb is not much better. I still have these many options in front of me.

So I am wondering what the real benefit is of Noet. I like to promote it to my fellow students, but I don't want to be responsible for the fact that they spend a lot of money on software that is not ready yet for classical languages.

At this moment I think it is much easier to use a Latin-Dutch dictionary on the computer and the rest just on paper.

Also, it would be cool if Noet could offer a timeline with relevant items.

It would be great if the factbook would work also for non biblical events, people, things, etc.

It would be great if the Biblical word study could work for Classical Latin as well.

I am wondering what the plans are for Noet.

Yes, it seems the marketing is ahead of the product development, but maybe I'm judging it by Logos & Bible software standards.

Automatic tagging. There are a few (emphasis on few) resources that are fully tagged by a human--the Iliad comes to mind--but can you imagine the time and effort (and cost) it would take to tag each and every word in a given Greek or Latin text? People certainly do it for the Bible, but for Plutarch...?

I'm very happy with having a rough idea of the morphology of a word in a Perseus or Loeb text. I wouldn't want to pay for a human-tagged resource.

I understand that it is really expensive. But now morph searching is rather difficult.

Maybe we should start a forum-community project? Or would that just not work at all, since it is not the Bible?

Someone from FaithLife provided context as to why the Perseus collections were not as extensively tagged as other Logos/Verbum/Noet resources, but I am not able to find that post in the vast sea of forum material.  This may be old news, but the collection comes directly from the Perseus Collection/Texts at Tufts University.  Tagging is minimal as it comes hence "free" to all of us Logos/Verbum/Noet users.  Still a valuable set of resources in my mind.

I understand the perseus tagging, but the Loeb library is not much better.

Could someone please explain if Community Tags would address this problem?
