Re: Trivia: Which chapters have the most obscure words?

Can the MorphGNT produce a list of chapters showing the chapters with the highest numbers of infrequent three (or four) letter strings in them? E.g. frequent στρ (or στρε) vs. infrequent χαβ (or αχαβ)? MorphGNT is just the SBLGNT text with extra data attached to it: 050527 V- -AAPNPM- Ἀγαγόντες Ἀγα...

Re: Trivia: Which chapters have the most obscure words?

You're welcome, Stephen. Matthew 1 was the first chapter that jumped to mind when I first read your question. :) As for a list of the rare words in Acts 27 the script I wrote to count frequencies was easily adjusted to also report the actual rare words themselves as well. How is a good way to share ...

English transliterated INTO Greek alphabet?

I have a friend just starting out in Greek, who is somewhat overwhelmed with simultaneously learning 1) a different writing system, and 2) a different language. In the interest of focusing on one thing at a time, I'd like to help him become more comfortable working with the Greek alphabet first. It'...

Re: Prompts for active vs. middle/passive

If you really want to omit labels, you can side-step discussion of what you're aiming for altogether, and allow the data to show students what you're looking for. This can be done with Recognition Exercises that ask students to recognize the Difference among elements: Identify which verb of this gro...

Re: Computer Aided Language Learning - Principal Parts

Any thoughts on the best way to leverage the corpus to help people learn verb morphology? I agree that we must move beyond "parse this word" flashcards. It seems that learning new things within a known context gives more 'hooks' for building mental connections. ...I could definitely create a query ...

Hello everyone, My name is Emma Ehrhardt. My language background includes a couple of years of Greek and Hebrew language study in undergrad. Over the past six months I've felt compelled to pick back up intentional study of Greek so I can do more than pick out a few words while reading along during l...
