Re: Scribes don’t augment right

2. The ευ/ηυ issue is well known, even beginning grammars often commenting on it (earlier Greek tends to augment it, later Greek no so much). My dilemma is not finding them, but classifying them. I have classified them all one way, but I am second guessing that. Given only 2 choices, alternative sp...

Re: Scribes don’t augment right

I also wouldn't mind seeing the list, if you still have it? :) I didn't keep it because I realized that it would not be difficult to generate such a list from my data, but I probably won't get around to that for while. But I do happen to have the Perseus data handy, and it had records for over 3200...

Re: Scribes don’t augment right

I had started keeping a list, but there were quite a few so I stopped writing them down. A list can be easily generated from the Perseus data, but here are two observations: 1. It seems to me that most of them were imperfects, but not so much aorists. Anecdotally, I was surprised at how often that i...

Mount of Mercies

I am almost done with my latest project which has taken 7-months to both parse and assign context-sensitive glosses for every manuscript (over 1.5 million words) in the CNTR database ( https://greekcntr.org ). One issue I have to finalize is how to assign lexemes (and thereby the associated meaning)...

Re: Collation format

I haven't really gotten any more feedback on this, so I think Andy and I will probably just do what we want, and perhaps others may benefit from it.

Re: Collation format

ID should be large enough to accommodate everything in Sinaiticus/Vaticanus. Those were already accounted for and there still will be about 50,000 slot ID's free for the future. I think smaller is better, but I am guessing we will probably have to go with a 4-digit ID, because people will probably ...

Re: Collation format

If I understand correctly, this document is about labeling slots that have been identified by some other process, did I get that right? I think the scenario looks like this: Someone like Alan prepares a database with slots for all known texts using some algorithm that aligns the texts, perhaps with...

Re: Collation format

I am quite sure I am missing something here because my first question is, "why not allow greek letters to be used for Slot ID's and allow a variable length slot id?" (If the concern were about storage space, we wouldn't use base 58, but something more compact.) i.e. The Slot ID for ονειδισωσιν ονιδ...

Collation format

If you have any interest in being able to download the CNTR transcriptions in some type of collation format (see https://greekcntr.org/manuscripts.htm ), you ought to take a look at some of the ideas being proposed at https://greekcntr.org/slots.pdf . We are trying to come up with a standardized dat...

Re: Scribes don’t augment right

It might be interesting to see some examples of missing augments, especially if they are pretonic. I will try to remember to keep a list of them as I come across them while I am morphologically parsing the texts. I don't remember seeing very many of them, but just enough to raise a flag with me. So...
