- takes as input a passage of Greek and a translation (you can cut and paste up to 100 passages),
scrambles the words in random order,
then allows you to reassemble the words in the order which seems right to you
It is written for a Windows platform using Excel 2013. It is NOT bullet-proof, or elegant at all - but seems to work fine for me in my setup.
I am finding this little routine quite useful as an exercise to see if I can predict the word order of different sentences and clauses from the GNT. So far - not so good! But I am doing at least a few examples every day, and definitely getting better at it. I think that this tool is giving me a real boost in learning how GNT authors arrange the wording in their phrases, clauses, and sentences. Actually, there are other benefits of doing this excercise that I hadn't foreseen, because you have to think about more than just word order to reassemble the passage. You can also add enhancements to the exercise - such as using your own translation which can reflect the Greek word order - to help learn how Greek authors expressed themselves.
I have attached a copy of the spreadsheet with the macro here if you want to try it out.
