Bunning Heuristic Prototype Greek New Testament

Post by Alan Bunning » December 29th, 2017, 7:50 pm

In case you are looking for yet another critical text, the CNTR has released a preliminary draft of the Bunning Heuristic Prototype (BHP) Greek New Testament under a CC-BY-SA license. The introduction and data files are located for free download at https://greekcntr.org/resources.htm. This draft comes complete with morphological parsing, Enhanced Strong’s Numbers (ESN), and Koine orthography among other things. The CNTR Project Description (https://greekcntr.org/downloads/project.pdf) has also been accordingly updated in several places to incorporate the various parsing details. Most anything else I would want to say about the text is contained in the BHP Introduction (https://greekcntr.org/downloads/BHP_Introduction.pdf). Various features of this draft are still being worked on and checked by volunteers for consistency, but the text, morphology, and ESN’s are pretty solid at this point. Feedback is most certainly welcome.

I would also like to thank all of you at B-Greek who have helped me understand various aspects about the Greek language over the years, some of which made their way into this BHP release in one way or another. I have had to learn way more Greek than I ever wanted to know, so some of this is kind of your fault. :D

Cool! Thanks for releasing this.

I won't have time to look at this much until January, but can you say more about the algorithms you used to generate it?

The short answer is that the algorithms take quite a bit to explain, more than I would want to write here. That would probably be a nice topic for a paper that I could publish. The algorithm was not rigorously applied in making this text anyway, which it why it is only a prototype. Unfortunately, I probably won’t get around to writing everything up until I get closer to releasing the computer-generated text, and that could be quite a while. (I am shooting for this summer, but you know how that goes.) But it will eventually be included in the CNTR Project Description at some point.
