ESV missing tag

Today at church I was using Accordance in my ipad while we are studying 1 Corinthians. I noticed that the word translated as "greed" in 1 Corinthians 5:11 (ESVS) is not tagged nor show anything in the Instant Display. I checked other tagged translations like the NIV (both tagged versions), NKJ, NASB95S, NRSVS, Mounce, KJVS, HCSBS and they all have the word tagged and it display in the Instant Display.

 

When I got home I check on Accordance desktop on the MAC with the same results.

 

Why is that specific word not tagged on the ESVS and it is in every other tagged Bible? Is this intentional or a bug?

David – I find untagged words in various versions on a regular basis. Just use Mac-Acc to "Report a correction." We can all contribute to improving Accordance modules that way.

 

I've noticed that some versions are more completely tagged than others.

Nothing in this world is perfect, so you may find errors in any keyed text. However, we have different sources for the tagging:

KJVS was done early, presumably word by word, by volunteers in the early days of Bible software.

NAS95S, HCSBS, NIV-G/K and now NIV11-GK and GKE were done by the publishers who invested considerable effort to provide accurate and complete tagging.

Our other texts were tagged in house: ESVS, NRSVS, JPSS and we admit that these are works in progress. We continually update them as we receive suggestions and corrections from you, our faithful users.

Helen – When a text has been tagged by a publisher, can Accordance add to or correct their tagging?

We do only if it's very clearly an error, not a difference of judgment. This is a fuzzy area.

Thanks. So we should keep on sending locations where the links are incorrect or missing, right?
