  1. Wondering if any thought has been given to A Biblical Hebrew Reference Grammar (2017), second edition, by Christo van der Merwe, et al. I would be interested as it seems to be the most current.
  2. I'm trying to increase my reading of non-biblical Greek texts while focusing on vocabulary words that appear most frequently across all my Greek texts. My plan is to focus on memorizing just those words that are most frequent across all my texts as I come across them in my reading. Is there a way then to read the Apostolic Fathers (for example) in Greek with words highlighted that appear most frequently across all my Greek texts? How would I go about doing this? Also, is there a way to search for frequency based on percentage and not just "count?"
  3. Hello, I have searched far and wide and cannot seem to figure out how to define a range by means of excluding, rather than simply including books. Specifically, I am working in the OT Peshitta (PESHOT-T) and would like to conduct searches only in the books of the Tanak and exclude the apocryphal books from my searches, i.e., Letter of Jeremiah, Baruch, Judith, Susanna, Bel, 4Ezra, Wisdom, Sirach, and 1-4Maccabees. Other than manually entering all 39 (24) books of the Hebrew OT in a defined range, is there any way in which I can define a range that is something along the lines of "Gen-Mal" minus the 12 books of the apocrypha?
  4. If you're like me, you like to stay fresh on the original languages, but don't want to "cheat" by using an interlinear or reader's Bible with all the vocabulary words occurring less than 100x in the footnotes. [i'm not sure if what I'm suggesting is in another post, or if I took concepts and applied them for my own use, so if anyone has already posted on this, please let me know.] There's an easy way to do this in Accordance in order to facilitate reading and yet quickly identify those words you probably don't know. 1.) Open up your Greek or Hebrew text. 2.) In the Search drop-down menu, click on Enter Command > COUNT 3.) Enter the number of words you are comfortable with not knowing. For example, if you have learned all the words of the GNT occurring 30x or more, enter 1-30 in the command. http://www.drewdbrown.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Screen-Shot-2014-11-11-at-11.10.27-AM.png 4.) Accordance now returns all those words occurring 30x or less in the GNT. 5.) Click on the Highlights button. Make a new highlight color and call it Greek Vocab. http://www.drewdbrown.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Screen-Shot-2014-11-11-at-11.17.28-AM.png 6.) Shift-Click on the new color, and voila - Accordance will highlight all of the Greek Vocabulary words you don't know. http://www.drewdbrown.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Screen-Shot-2014-11-11-at-11.25.16-AM.png 7.) When reading the text, you can now instantly see what words you do and don't know. This encourages a regular reading of the text because 1) You aren't overwhelmed with tons of new vocab (esp. in Hebrew Bible!) and 2) You can be encouraged because you actually know more words than you think. This will help you identify new forms of words you already know. 8.) Repeat for Hebrew, Aramaic, etc. Yeah Accordance! Yeah science!
  5. In Greece, among Greeks, and in Greek Orthodox liturgies the koine Greek of the New Testament is pronounced just as everyday modern Greek is pronounced. Native Greek speakers pronounce the Greek of all ages in the same way they converse with one another today. At this site you can hear a native Greek speaker reading the ancient language as his own living language: https://www.youversion.com/bible/209/jhn.1.ntpt Some of us use modern Greek pronunciation in our teaching of biblical Greek. With the Speak function in Accordance it would be wonderful if modern Greek pronunciation were included as an option alongside the Erasmian academic pronunciation that it offers now. When I create Greek-English vocabulary flash cards on Quizlet,com, the software will pronounce the Greek with modern pronunciation. Why not in Accordance? I wonder how many of you would agree with that suggestion.
  6. I am reading through the Psalms in the LXX and Biblia Hebraica on my Accordance. On Psalm 13 the Biblia Hebraica does not have verse six, but the Hebrew Bible (BHS) does. I'd like to compare the "Hebrew Bible (BHS)" and "Biblia Hebraica" to see which other verses are missing from the Biblia Hebraica, but I do not remember how to go about this. Your help will be greatly appreciated

    Analysis Window

    The Analysis Window is a great feature in Accordance. I use it daily for both analyzing and learning (e.g. expanding vocab). But at present, though in tab format, the Analysis Window operates in Accordance as a text file. And all the data on each word is not displayed always, namely a word's Root. Suggestions: 1) Include the Root in the Analysis Window (and everywhere else perhaps) for every word, including the verbs which share the Root in their Lemma 2) Display the Analysis Window like a spreadsheet with columns etc. so it looks and feels like Word Charts. 3) Configure the Analysis Window like a spreadsheet so the data can be arranged by column etc. These would solve some of the issues for exporting vocab lists described in Vocab Building Format and list of roots.

  8. Just purchased the Codex add-on and am loving reading the earliest Greek texts of the NT. Is there a way to view the correctors in this module? The Read-Me of Codex Sinaiticus states: "Conventions in the digital version 1. Text Decisions: As in Tischendorf, the attempt is to replicate the original scribe rather than a subsequent corrector, whose work is also evident in the text." Where is the corrector's work evident in the text module? Does this just apply to the print version/images of the MSS?

    additional output fonts

    Hi. I'm wondering if there is any way to change the output font for Hebrew. Currently it appears that one can only "output" a Hebrew selection (e.g. copying and pasting a section of Hebrew into Word) in one of these fonts: Yehudit SPTiberian HebraicaII SuperHEBREW I'd like to export in SBL Hebrew. is this possible? If not, can it be added? Brad Pribbenow ~`~`~`~`~`~`~ Accordance 10 (Essentials Collection
