Re: Linux GNT Lemma Search

Unfortunately, the OP says he needs offline access. Several websites let you do this. Hmm, doesn't "offline" mean "without network access"? That's what installable Bible software does. Websites are for online access, right? Right. I think some of the websites are better than the free installable Bi...

Re: Linux GNT Lemma Search

I haven't looked for a few years - which of these allow search by lemma? Sorry, I haven't either, but the engine is able to do lemma search if the text module includes lemmas. Some Greek modules have at least Strong's numbers which work as lemmas. True, some of them do let you search by Strong's nu...

Re: Linux GNT Lemma Search

Thanks, Ken, for the suggestion. What I'm looking for is a something with a graphical interface that I can type the lemma into, then it spits out the verse references, which then I can click on the read the verses. The reason I want this is that as I read the greek fathers, I run into words for whi...

Re: Oxia vs tonos accent

So use Tonos if you want normalization to work. In my environments, I convert Oxia to Tonos so queries will work the same way for texts that look the same. True, and it's a botch on Unicode's part. Standard fonts that distinguish oxia and tonos (as for example, one of B-Greek's defaults) will end u...

Re: Modern Koine pronunciation resources

I just heard of this audio Septuagint : http://www.bible.is/GRKAVS/Gen/1/N Wow, I hadn't noticed they had added the Septuagint. And the bits that I have heard so far are a little slower than the New Testament readings, which may make it easier to follow for those who have complained about his readi...

Re: Oxia vs tonos accent

James Tauber has blogged on this here: Python, Unicode and Ancient Greek And here's the money quote: Canonical Composition won’t necessarily reverse Canonical Decomposition. In other words normalize("NFC", normalize("NFD", s)) won’t necessarily give you back s. An NFC normalization always decomposes...

Re: Oxia vs tonos accent

One thing people can do is add Gentium to their device or make sure they have a Times New Roman or Times that has good support for Unicode.

Re: Oxia vs tonos accent

The specific forum software that we're using here at B-Greek allows for very little control over font display, though. The one thing we can do is list a set of fonts to be used, depending on what is available on the system. We cannot change it for individual letters. It's quite possible that changi...
