  1. I have been trying to learn some Biblical Aramaic. This has included listening to the recent series, "Daily Dose of Aramaic" [https://dailydoseofaramaic.com], then looking at the same verse in Accordance. When I listen to the verse using the module "Audio Reading of the Hebrew Bible by verse," it sounds like the person is speaking a Hebrew version rather than the Aramaic found in the HMT-W4. Is this true? Would someone knowledgeable of the language please clarify what is being read? Is it Aramaic or Hebrew? Thank you very much! The LORD bless you and keep you. Michael

    Daniel with Hebrew parsing

    Hi, At the moment, this is what I see in the quickview -- Aramaic verbs. And with the triple click, BDB gives me the Aramaic. Can I set it up so that the Hebrew quickview parsing and BDB appears? "peal perfect" doesn't mean anything to me (yet). Thank you!
  3. It is hard to find a good supplement to HALOT for Biblical Aramaic. This one was translated and revised by Fitzmyer, who is a noted Aramaic scholar. Vogt, Ernst. A Lexicon of Biblical Aramaic: Clarified by Ancient Documents. Translated and revised by J. A. Fitzmyer. Subsidia Biblica 42. Rome: Gregorian & Biblical Press, 2011.
  4. If any of my brothers and sisters in Christ can help me with these statistics, I’d greatly appreciate it. My two questions are What is the approximate number of individual lexemes in Codex Ambrosianus/Old Testament Peshitta? (including the deuterocanonical books) What is the approximate number of individual lexemes in Codex Ambrosianus/Old Testament Peshitta, if only the books that are in both the Codex Ambrosianus and the KJV Bible are looked at? This well be more of an “apples to apples” comparison if only the books in the KJV Hebrew bible canon are looked at. Can you please quote your source on if you used Accordance to find these statistics yourself or if you found them via another source? I have often read/heard that Hebrew and Aramaic are very similar. I’m trying to find out just how similar these are in regards to the OT. The number I normally see for the number of individual lexemes in the Hebrew Old Testament is 8,679. I’m trying to statistically compare this with the Aramaic Old Testament. Thank you for your help, Brian P.S. I am not a scholar. I have close to a basic understanding of Aramaic. I am just starting Hebrew. So please no answers that are to technical. Although, I can look definitions up if I need to. An approximate number is fine.
  5. Prompted by a fb post on Nerdy Language Majors this morning, I wondered if I could use Accordance to search for the Aramaic words in the Bible. Yep. Here's my search in NA28-T: the morphological search ( [ANY Aram] finds 15 verses with 22 words. It appears that only four of those words are tagged accented: ῥακά, ὡσαννὰ, and the phrase μαράνα θά.
  6. Schuele, Andreas. An Introduction to Biblical Aramaic. Louisville: Westminster John Knox Press, 2012. This book is arranged as a reference grammar, but is written at an introductory level. It can be used by itself to learn biblical Aramaic, or can be used as a complement to another introductory grammar.

    A Grammar of Biblical Aramaic

    Rosenthal is the best intermediate/advanced reference grammar of Biblical Aramaic. This is an excellent tool to consult when doing exegetical work in biblical Aramaic. Rosenthal, Franz. A Grammar of Biblical Aramaic. 7th, expanded ed. Porta Linguarum Orientalium. Wiesbaden: Harrassowitz Verlag, 2006.
  8. I would like to be able to search for 1. words in the Hebrew bible excluding Aramaic. So all words occurring the HB less then 70 times but excluding Aramaic words. 2. Only Aramaic words occurring less than 5 times. One struggle I always have with making Hebrew/Aramaic searches is that when I type the font goes right to left even when I try to type something like "-0". Also is there a guide for making these types of searches anywhere? Maybe just a text file with sample searches and some sample guides on how to make searches in the search bar for things like frequency?
  9. Would it be possible to negotiate a deal with David Bauscher to include his translation of the Peshitta NT in Accordance? I understand that, as an Aramaic primacist, his translation is controversial but I think that makes it more valuable. As long as the original Aramaic text and an alternative translation (such as Murdock's) are available, having an Aramaic primacist translation can do no harm and may shed light on certain difficult passages in the New Testament. Besides, intellectual honesty would argue for giving each side of a controversy its best advocate. Just as a Greek primacist wouldn't want all his Greek translations to be made by Aramaic primacists, neither should all the Aramaic translations be made by Greek primacists. Besides, Murdock's translation is a little old in the tooth....

    Footnotes in TAD-English

    The TAD-E module seems to have a number of footnotes indicated throughout. But I am unable to find the text associated with any of these footnotes - nothing appears in instant details and I can't find any relevant text within the module. Am I missing something? Have I correctly installed it? Thanks.

    INSNWS: Module incomplete? Updates?

    I am doing some work on the Tel Dan inscription, and am currently doing a literature review. I am currently reading through one of the early articles on the inscription, and one of the footnotes references an inscription in KAI. Of course, I turn to my trusty Accordance module (which I love!), to look up the reference, and was surprised to find that the inscription referenced (KAI 224) is not there. Surprisingly, I only just now realized that there are a number of inscriptions in KAI that are not present in the Accordance module. Is there a reason for this? There are many gaps in the numbers listing, some large, some small. Are there any plans to update the module with the missing inscriptions? I know I would use the module even more if I knew that it contained the entire KAI collection. Help please : ) Thanks!
  12. I don’t know if this has been brought up before but there seems to be an issue with BHS/HMT tagging in the Aramaic texts of Daniel and Ezra. Perhaps there is an “option” somewhere for resolving this but I suspect it’s a bug. With HALOT as my top Hebrew tool, when I hover my cursor over an Aramaic word, sometimes Instant Details brings up the correct Aramaic entry in HALOT but very frequently it brings up the (incorrect) Hebrew entry with the same root letters instead. This is particularly irritating in iOS but the same thing happens on Mac. Frequently this entry is a faux-ami. Do others have the same problem? Is it resolvable?
