Re: Timothy Nelson

Thanks for the advice Barry. I think what I really need to do at the moment is just knuckle down and a) read text, and b) memorise vocab, but I will keep your advice in mind, and hopefully get the opportunity to do it. Certainly the comment about doing more than you are comfortable with is immediat...

Re: Read on with Xenophon, read another or ... ?

What I can't give you in all this, because I have only a smattering of it myself, is a formal understanding of the rhetorical devices that are being employed here. I have an "adequate" understanding of the Greek in most places, but what would be even better would be an understanding of the way that...

Re: Verses with the Most Common Words

How would you conduct the study? What are your conditions? You'd have to state this very clearly, if you do so, I think the data could be generated. The goal is to find phrases, verses, and passages with clusters of common words. Those may be three different studies, with different scopes within wh...

Re: Verses with the Most Common Words

Jonathan, you seem to have an idea on how one would interact with a New Testament database. Is that something I could do, or does it take some coding? I'm not Jonathan, but I'll make at least a partial answer to your question. Some questions you can get Bible software to ask of the text. With a mor...

Re: Morphology with Cascading Stylesheets (CSS)

You can see this in the Gospel of Luke . I need to do a bunch of clean-up, creating a better way to navigate, breaking it down to chapter, etc., but I hope this mockup can demonstrate what it's like to read with the morphology coloring. My main complaint is that, in your key (which doesn't have a b...

Re: Genitive Pronouns in Noun Phrases in Syntax Trees

Hmm. I guess my philosophy on noun phrases is that the noun is the ... maybe "head" isn't the right word [*], but the element linked to the verb, with the article specifying a mandatory attribute (definite/indefinite/qualitative), and the pronoun specifying an optional (and therefore less closely li...

Re: Genitive Pronouns in Noun Phrases in Syntax Trees

Well... you're going to need to be able to parse object constituents to find the head and then look at the case of the head . Since apparently you had that information, I would just use that. Recreating that information algorithmically is not really trivial and seems error-prone. Hmm. But if he can...

Re: Genitive Pronouns in Noun Phrases in Syntax Trees

Stephen: My assumption (which may be wrong) is that Jonathan doesn't have that information in computer-readable format, and he's trying to see if he can get the computer to figure it out for him, rather than him having to go through and mark every verb.

Re: Genitive Pronouns in Noun Phrases in Syntax Trees

I am basically looking for a reliable algorithm to identify the case of a verb's object. If a phrase is known to be the object of a verb, what is the algorithm for identifying the case? Or should I simply rely on the GBI's head marker? (I'm a computer guy, not a linguist, so my ignorance of linguis...
