Tagging is not always directly shown but is required for the calculation of the data that is shown. An example of the is the Morph River tool.

1. The Morph River depends upon the morphology tagging and is available for any resource that is morphologically tagged - directly or via a reverse interlinear. One selects the part of speech and the attribute of that part that you wish to see displayed. The data is accurate counts at the verse marker shown in a stacked format. Between verses is generated to be visually pleasing not precise statistics. Unfortunately the text rather than the counts are shown on hover.

2. One may include multiple attributes for a part of speech,

3. Sometimes a chart that is boring in one morphology will shine in another - an example of why it is worth the effort to become familiar with multiple morphologies.

Thank you, MJ. I have not really used the Morph River yet. What do you use it for? Or what do you read in the examples above?

Because I don't read the original languages, I use it for two purposes:

  • identifying change of tone in a book and the elements that mark it as such
  • identifying why two parallel passages give such a different feel to an event
