1. The Morphology Interactive provides a popup with the Greek lemma, the transliteration and a gloss when the mouse is in the entry box. There are two basic forms of the chart - one that compresses the chart by removing empty columns and rows and one that potentially shows all possible morphological forms. Only  forms that actually occur in the corpus (currently Greek New Testament)  are shown. See Interactive Media: Morphology Charts

2. Note that the show empty button is a toggle switch that changes format when selected - if all the empty columns and rows weren't enough of a clue.

3. The cells have a fixed maximum size. If it is too small for an entry, the full entry is visible on a mouse over.

4. For each of the charts the top row and left column(s) are headers showing the number of occurrences that occur in that column or row. For example, in the illustration below the verb is indicative 20 times of which 8 are present active, 1 is imperfect active, ... Or that 20 may also be seen as composed of 3 first person singular occurrences, 9 third person singular ...

If you click on a particular cell, the first 5 occurrence of the form will open below the chart. The following information is shown:

  • the first line contains the selected form, the form in transliteration, the morphology of the form, the count and the percent of the class this form represents
  • in two columns, up to 5 occurrences are shown in your top priority Greek Bible and your top priority English Bible - only the English has the word highlighted
  • a search to allow one to see all the occurrences of form

5. Mouse over on the Search provides a bit more detail on the Search e.g. resource

6. Here is an example of the search which was initiated. Note because the example has less than 6 occurrences, the Search matches what was shown on the Morphology Chart.

7. Here I've marked how the counts and percentage are developed.

8. Note you can also initiate the search from the morphology shown on the first line.

9. One can enter a lemma via a Greek keyboard or g:transliteration format and selecting the appropriate entry in the drop down pick list.

10. From a Bible Context Menu there is no direct link to the Morphology Chart but one can copy & paste the lemma.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
