The Logos morphological tagging of the Nestle-Aland text came from GRAMCORD.
So if there are any incomplete taggings, it is probably just an error in
encoding the text, and if you notify Logos of where these happen, they can
correct the tags. Perhaps the errors were originally in the GRAMCORD
database, but have since been corrected there and not on the Logos side of
the world. But the taggings are pretty much the same.

Or are their incomplete taggings not in the NA26, but rather in other tagged
texts (The LXX for instance)? I haven't run into any yet.

Cheers,
Vincent Setterholm

Having used both the Logos software (ie Scholar's Library) and Gramcordís
with the Bible Companion Series CD, I would make the following
observations.
1. Gramcord is much more complete in its morphological tagging than
Logos. Many verbs in Logos are tagged merely as "a verb" whereas Gramcord
will give the complete information on each verb (i.e. person, number,

tense, voice, mood).
2. Logos has greater volume of none language type resources (at
additional cost) such as commentaries.
3. Gramcord is easier to use in constructing complex morphological
searches.
4. Gramcordís ability to have multiply windows opened and synchronized
lexicons is very useful.
5. Logosís search engine for non-morphological searches is more
comprehensive.

Overall, I think Gramcord is the superior language program, whereas, Logos
is the better overall Bible study program. So depending on your personal
needs and goals, one product may be better for you than the other.

Hope this is helpful. Should you have more specific questions you may
e-mail me direct.

Sola Gratia,
