    #162 Greek Grammars & Construct Searches

    Podcast #162 is in response to a viewer’s request. (See the Podcasts forum thread, Ideas, I need Ideas!) https://www.accordancebible.com/forums/topic/21989-ideas-i-need-ideas/ It shows how to build a Construct search based on a description of a particular construction in a Greek grammar. In this case, Dr. J shows how to find each of Wallace’s four classes of conditional sentences. Ready for a challenge? The Greek Grammar Searches Workspace features in the podcast is attached for your convenience. Enjoy! Greek Grammar Searches.accord.zip Note: Even if you do not own all the resources included in the workspace, it may still open for you in Accordance 11 and up, but will crash if the Syntax is not installed.
  2. I was watching this video by Abram K-J and noticed his 2nd Ed. of Pratico's Hebrew Grammar has these audio icons available to playback pronunciation but my 3rd Ed. of the same grammar does not. I changed the background color of my theme just to make sure and even checked other chapters, but can't find any. Was this capability/feature removed from the 3rd Ed. or am I missing something? On a lesser note, the word count isn't hyperlinked in the 3rd Ed. as it is in the 2nd.
  3. I'd like to see the following added to Accordance please: Title: Biblical Hebrew: An Introductory Grammar by Page Kelley Publisher: Eerdmans , 2018 Why? Primarily because it's my institution's required textbook for Hebrew language class in Seminary, and I don't foresee them changing this requirement. And, in my limited use of the book, I believe it does a substantial job in both content and method in introducing Hebrew grammar to beginner students.
  4. I would love to see Arnold and Choi in Accordance! Cambridge publishes it: https://www.cambridge.org/core/books/guide-to-biblical-hebrew-syntax/5ED29C846ECE815996E54691D9A69A12
  5. Hi Everyone, Two questions: 1) How can I look up if a Greek verb lexically prefers to be in one tense? - I know that certain verbs lexically prefer the aorist or present tense, but when I'm reading the GNT, how can I tell if a certain verb prefers that tense or if the author is emphasizing the aspect? Is there a way to look this up on accordance? If so, how and what resources are needed? 2) How can I look up if a verb typically takes a complementary infinitive of a particular tense?
  6. I am wondering what resources are available in Accordance that address this topic. Below is a revised section of an e-mail I sent to a friend for advice. Maybe there are others here who also would like to chime in. My question: Is there any objective criterion to distinguish whether the Greek third person imperative is best rendered "let" or is best rendered more forcefully, with something like "must" or "should"? Or, must the translator rely on the context alone? (I have a hunch there is no objective criterion, but I'd like to read what others have written on this, if they have.) E.g., Jas 5:20 has this (KJV): "Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way …" (TR-Scr: γινωσκέτω ὅτι ὁ ἐπιστρέψας ἁμαρτωλὸν ἐκ πλάνης ὁδοῦ). This clearly is not a command such as "He must know" or "He is required to know" or "he should know". However, there are other passages where a translation that communicates merely that something is desired or permitted seems too weak. I think Jas 5:13-14 has verbs that are stronger than desirable or permissible actions. The folks spoken of there should pray, should sing psalms, and should call the elders. The third person imperatives there are not denoting just suggestions of desirable or permissible actions, but things that must be done in order to obey God's Word. Thus my question: Is there any objective criterion to distinguish this? Where can I learn more? Do you know of any resources that discuss this? I have Wallace's Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics in Accordance, but I did searches for "third person imperative(s)" and didn't find anything. I also have the Theological Journals in Accordance, so maybe there's some article in there that would shed light on this. But if there is, I'm not smart enough to find it [i have never figured out how to search the Journals efficiently and find what I'm looking for.] I'm open to resources not in Accordance, too, if you know of them. I may not be able to respond to your comments quickly here in the forum, but please know that I appreciate your input. Thank you. Eric
  7. hey everybody, long time user, first time poster. so, i had the thought for a search the other day. say i wanted to find "good book," but other "_____ books," too: [adjective] book can i do this in an english text? thanks a bunch, bookie
  8. Here's some input from a graduate student who uses Accordance daily in his studies. I'm currently studying for an MA in Ancient Judaism and Christian Origins (Nyack College in New York, NY). My Biblical Hebrew skills are at in intermediate level. So I've found it tremendously useful that I can have several important reference grammars at my fingertips and searchable while I'm doing my daily readings and translations (It's especially useful not to have to carry around several thick tomes when I'm traveling in and out of the city for classes!). But here are a few more books geared towards quick reference that I would love to see available—I think they would fit perfectly with the searching capabilities of accordance. 1. Williams Hebrew Syntax: Third Edition by John C. Beckman 2. A Guide to Biblical Hebrew Syntax by Bill Arnold and John Choi I have also started a class on the Dead Sea Scrolls and Qumranic Hebrew this semester and would find equally useful: 1. Qumran Hebrew: An Overview of Orthography, Phonology, and Morphology by Eric Reymond 2. Dictionary of the Targumim, Talmud Bavli, Talmud Yerushalmi and Midrasnhic Literature by Marcus Jastrow (in fact, I'm a bit surprised this one is not already on here). I hope my suggestion are helpful! I would love to see these works available!
  9. How (if possible) would I do a search for occurrences of the definite direct objects where the object marker את does not occur? Any help or info appeciated. Thanks Jimmy Doyle
  10. I tried to search "waw consecutive perfect" (whatever you may call it) but I found out that option is not available though I have "was consecutive" option that is only for waw consecutive prefix conjugation. I hope I am missing something. If I want to search waw consecutive perfect form of a certain verb or that grammatical entity in general, do I have to do the construct search or put a complicating set of commands?
  11. When I am looking at a passage, I am trying to find an option that indicates the verbs, adjectives, nouns, participles, etc. I am sure Accordance can do this, but I've been looking for it for hours and haven't been able to find it in any forums or by myself. I would like to be able to see these different parts of speech highlighted, circled, or underlined. Can someone please help me out!!!? Thank you!
