A Morphological Lexicon of New Testament Greek

Post by Jonathan Robie » November 28th, 2015, 5:32 pm

At SBL 2015, James Tauber presented A Morphological Lexicon of New Testament Greek. His data is available on Github. He is taking a less traditional approach to morphology, rethinking how he believes morphology should best be done.

I'm not sure I would characterise my approach as less traditional. While I'm coming from a very modern viewpoint with regard to morphology, that viewpoint is in many respects a return to very traditional approaches that focus on paradigms rather than morphemes.

People who are interested in the work I'm doing should also check out various posts over the last couple of months on my blog at http://jktauber.com as they go into more detail that the slides from SBL do.

Also note that as well as the GitHub repo Jonathan linked to, most of my verbal morphology work is under https://github.com/jtauber/greek-inflection (at least for now) although, like the morphological-lexicon repo, it's currently more tools and work-in-progress data than something particularly useful for non-programmers.

In my talk I described my goal as a kind of "analytical lexicon on steroids" but another way of thinking of it, if you're familiar with the morphology books of Mounce or Brooks and Winbery is I'm redoing Mounce/Brooks/Winbery in a more rigorous, verifiable, computational way.

I'm also trying to put an end to duplicated efforts producing paradigms and lists of principal parts.
