Re: Exploring Syntax with Lowfat Treebanks and Jupyter Notebooks

I hope to set up an environment where people can create Notebooks on the Internet without installing anything - this looks possible, but I haven't investigated everything thoroughly. I'm currently bringing resources into my own environment so I can make them available in that way. If that fails, I'l...

Re: Exploring Syntax with Lowfat Treebanks and Jupyter Notebooks

I have now added the PROIEL treebank so that I can compare analyses between Lowfat and PROIEL or use whichever one seems to work best for looking at a given question. To make it easier to compare, I transformed it into constituency while maintaining the ids that represent dependency relations. Here'...

Re: Can ἄνθρωπος in the singular refer to people in general?

The least confusing thing might be to follow BDAG here. I think ἄνθρωπος, in the singular, refers to people in general in some places in the Septuagint. A few examples: Gen 1:26 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ θεός ποιήσωμεν ἄνθρωπον κατ’ εἰκόνα ἡμετέραν καὶ καθ’ ὁμοίωσιν And God said, Let us make man according to our ...

Re: Can ἄνθρωπος in the singular refer to people in general?

Does Mounce state the principles he uses to determine which glosses to include? Without that, it's hard to answer his underlying question. If I were doing this, I might take a look at prototype theory . I'm no expert on prototype theory or lexicography, so here's a guess: A gloss should capture the ...

Re: syntax of disjunctive phrase (Matt. 5:36)

Hi Ruth,

You aren't late to the conversation, we are just gathering information to discuss.

I don't know much about iconicity, but split constituents do exist in Greek, and other languages have phenomena like separable verbs.

Re: syntax of disjunctive phrase (Matt. 5:36)

I did notice that Matthew 5:36 is not included in these results, that's because the treebank analyzes it differently. Hmm. Maybe later, if you have time, I wonder if it would be possible to run a search that would include the pattern in Matt. 5:36, too. Actually, I was fooled by my own output. It's...

Re: syntax of disjunctive phrase (Matt. 5:36)

I can't easily do queries that find split constituents vs. constituents that wholly precede the verb, but in reading in the next chapter of Matthew this morning, I ran across an almost-parallel example with a coordinating conjunction: οὐ δύνασθε θεῷ δουλεύειν καὶ μαμωνᾷ. (Matt. 6:24 BGT) Not all ot...

Re: Exploring Syntax with Lowfat Treebanks and Jupyter Notebooks

I have now added a blog post to explain what a Jupyter notebook is and how it is used, where it is used for Biblical Hebrew linguistics, etc.
