NAME: The Greek Tutor
Requirements: IBM PC-compatible 286 or better. EGA video card or
better. 11 MB free on hard disc. DOS 3.1 or higher.
Description: The Greek Tutor consists of (a) a 1.5 megabyte dictionary
which contains information sufficient to inflect any word in the New
Testament. It also has (b) 3 megabytes of text files which contain the
New Testament text and the inflectional identification for each word-form.
In addition, each word-form in the Fourth Gospel has its morphemic
expansion on file. These files are made available to the user by (c) a
set of programs which accept the user's commands, act on them, and display
the result. The student can choose either to ask the program to parse any
word in the selected text or to be asked for the same information. For
multi-user installations there is also (d) a facility which allows the
user (i.e., the student) to leave comments or questions for the
instructor. These messages form part of an automatic log of student
activity. Finally, there is (e) a set of utility programs which register
and un-register students, print their log file, and print usage
statistics. The Greek Tutor is a complete system which allows the
student to adapt the program to her/his own preferences, including the
ability to keep a collection of paradigms on which (s)he may be drilled.
Texts may be printed to files recognised by ScriptureFonts, Nota Bene or
ChiWriter. Drill cards can also be created which may be used with
MemCards (described above).
Price: US$50.00 (plus postage/media costs)
