Re: Reading Greek beyond the basics: Saturation style

Jonathan:
(Is there a way to create a link to a specific passage on laparola.net?)
Try this:
http://www.laparola.net/greco/index.php ... 6&rif2=3:2

where
rif1=book number (56=Ephesians)
rif2=verse number (3:2=Ch3 vs.2)

for more than one verse:
rif2=3:2-5

Re: Using Inscriptions for Greek

Hi Randall, The link is broken, somewhere in the "/l ... -tiberias/" part. On a related but off topic subject, you wrote: "...of an inscription from the Galilee." Perhaps you can answer a question that has been puzzling me since about 2004, when I first heard someone refer to Galilee as "the Galilee...

Re: Best Greek NT Commentaries

I can't say it's the "best" but the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series seems very good. I'm currently working through Galatians by Tom Schreiner (http://www.monergismbooks.com/Galatians-Zondervan-Exegetical-Commentary-on-the-New-Testament-p-19764.html). Rod Decker posted som...

Re: Funk BIGHG

Hi Jonathan, Thanks for the info...I will contact the publisher to see if I can take this further. At present, this was intended mainly for my own use, but if the publisher is willing, I would certainly make the epub version available. I would definitely be interested in helping make useful texts av...

Funk BIGHG

Greetings all. Is someone still actively working on the Funk Grammar on http://www.ibiblio.org/bgreek/project/funk-grammar/pre-alpha/? I am building an epub version (for my iPhone/Kindle) from the HTML and have found some corrections for the pre-alpha pages...only up to the "Part Two Introduction" s...

Re: OCR

Jonathan: OCRopus, mentioned in the .pdf file to which Alex referred, may help with multi-lingual texts: "OCRopus(tm) is a state-of-the-art document analysis and OCR system, featuring pluggable layout analysis, pluggable character recognition, statistical natural language modeling, and multi-lingual...

Re: OCR

Thanks Alex...very interesting paper! My next question was about the state of Open Source OCR. I have tried various tools like gocr and ocrad on mixed text without much success. OCRopus/Tesseract looks very promising.

Re: OCR

Thanks so much Ken, Wow, ABBYY certainly does a much better job than whatever U of T used (scribe13 is it?) for Souter. At least the Greek looks Greek, but still a lot of manual correction is required. The other factor with the JPEG2000 scans of Souter is that some (the ones I looked at anyway) are ...

Re: OCR

Re: OCR

Hi Ken, Do you have any idea how well any of these software packages do with both English and Greek on the same page, as in a Lexicon? I've been working on "fixing" the epub version of the Souter Pockey Lexicon (http://www.archive.org/details/pocketlexicontog00soutuoft) since it was converted with s...
