OpenText.org Syntactically Analyzed Greek New Testament

OpenText.org Syntactically Analyzed Greek New Testament

For anyone interested in digging deeper in their word study of the New Testament, this ground-breaking resource is just what you need! Logos has partnered with OpenText.org to create the Syntactically Analyzed Greek New Testament. For years, the primary focus of grammatical analysis has been on morphology. Although this component of grammar is necessary, it is only one half of the equation. Now syntax has been brought into the spotlight, and your word study will never be the same! With the new OpenText.org resources, Logos users can search more precisely and acquire results that are intuitively based on word relationships and groupings rather than simple single-word or exact phrase searches.

The OpenText.org material consists of three levels of tagging. These are:

  • Word Level: This is reflective of what is in standard morphologies. It includes form-based morphological tagging and lexical forms for dictionary/lexicon lookup. The OpenText.org resources also include potential semantic domains (from Louw & Nida) tagged at the word level.
  • Word Group Level: A word group is a group of one or more words. Frequently, word groups consist of only one word. Word groups can be like phrases; they are units of meaning consisting of one or more words.
  • Clause Level: In the OpenText.org clause model, clauses contain clause components. Clause components may contain embedded clauses or word groups.

How can this seemingly complex tagging scheme make your Bible study easier? The simple answer is that Syntax Searches move above the word itself and take into consideration word groupings and relationships. Because there are are additional layers of data encoded above the word level, groups of words can be dealt with as whole units while still allowing individual words to play roles within those units.

OpenText.org has developed three electronic books regarding syntax in the Greek New Testament

OpenText.org Syntactically Analyzed Greek New Testament

In order to conduct Syntax Searches you will need a specially tagged Greek New Testament or Hebrew Bible. The OpenText.org edition of the Greek New Testament outshines the typical Greek New Testament because it is organized into numbered clauses and secondary clauses and fully linkable with the other two resources from OpenText.org. When you add additional resources like Louw and Nida's Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament Based on Semantic Domains you can access extensive background and grammatical information simply by hovering your mouse over each greek word. The following screen shots were taken from the OpenText.org Syntactically Analyzed Greek New Testament.

 

OpenText.org Syntactically Analyzed Greek New Testament: Word Group Analysis

The Clause Analysis of OpentText.org's Syntactically Analyzed Greek New Testament vertically aligns the entire text of the Greek New Testament in both English and Greek. Next to each greek word is its respective clause or word group tag. Studying the grammatical relationship of words in the New Testament has never been easier! Look below to see how it works.

OpenText.org Syntactically Analyzed Greek New Testament: Glossary of Terminology

With the OpentText.org Syntactically Analyzed Greek New Testament: Glossary of Terminology you only need to hover over a segment of an analyzed clause to get a description of how and where that segment fits in the greater context of the verse. This glossary makes the Clause Analysis resource easier to use by explaining the symbols, terms and abbreviations therein.
