Our team has combed through the Old Testament, identifying semantic roles like “agent,” “beneficiary,” “location,” and many more. Because we’ve catalogued those roles, you can understand the underlying relationship a participant has with a verb in a clause. For example, Moses may be the speaker in a verse, but grammatically speaking, he’s not always the subject. The Semantic Roles dataset catalogues every time Moses is the speaker of a line of dialogue, even if he’s the object of the clause. We’ve even associated pronouns with their referents. For example, you can find every reference to an action performed by Elijah, even if he is not mentioned by name.
This dataset also identifies case frames. When you search a Greek or Hebrew verb, Logos consults this dataset, showing you a ring graph that displays its occurrence and frequency with different agents (who performs an action) and patients (who receives the action). See the many ways the verb can be used in a clause. Expand your search results into a mini concordance that displays the verses everywhere the verb, patient, and agent appear. We’ve even catalogued definitions for grammatical terms. The information we’ve collected represents years of research that Logos has done for you. We’ve hand tagged and cross referenced thousands of entries so you have access to the information you need in an instant.
