Linux GNT Lemma Search

I'm looking for freeware that contains the GNT with a lemma search function. I need it for offline use. I'm a linux (ubuntu) user. I really don't care what GNT it uses (Byz, UBS, TR, etc.). I've had trouble finding anything, which is strange because I would be shocked if it doesn't exist. I feel like it must be right under my nose and I don't see it. Can anyone help? Thanks!

It sounds like you'd be interested in what's described at http://biblicalhumanities.org/xquery/tu ... g-000.html

Thanks, Ken, for the suggestion.

What I'm looking for is a something with a graphical interface that I can type the lemma into, then it spits out the verse references, which then I can click on the read the verses. The reason I want this is that as I read the greek fathers, I run into words for which I'd like to check GNT usage.

Are you OK using the command line? If so, you could install Saxon and get the data that Ken pointed you to. You can search for sentences that contain a lemma, and return the sentence itself. I can help you with the path expression if you like. xmllint also allows path expressions.

Have you tried https://www.crosswire.org/applications/ ?
I haven't looked for a few years - which of these allow search by lemma?

Sorry, I haven't either, but the engine is able to do lemma search if the text module includes lemmas. Some Greek modules have at least Strong's numbers which work as lemmas.

True, some of them do let you search by Strong's numbers.

Unfortunately, the OP says he needs offline access. Several websites let you do this.

Hmm, doesn't "offline" mean "without network access"? That's what installable Bible software does. Websites are for online access, right?

Right. I think some of the websites are better than the free installable Bible software for this particular task. Then again, if he is comfortable with the shell, so is working with the data and an XPath processor, as I mentioned earlier.
