I'm not sure what you are asking. But I'll guess it is one of the following.

Many times when translating from one language to another there isn't a word for word mapping. In the KJV module we have all kinds of mappings.
In the following let aaa, bbb be words in Greek. Let xxx, yyy be words in Czech (or any other language).
Sometimes one word translates to several.
<w lemma="aaa">xxx yyy</w>
<w src="18" lemma="strong:G3177 lemma.TR:μεθερμηνευομενον" morph="robinson:V-PPP-NSN">being interpreted</w>

Sometimes several words translates to one.
<w lemma="aaa bbb">xxx</w>
<w src="3 4" lemma="strong:G3588 strong:G435 lemma.TR:ο lemma.TR:ανηρ" morph="robinson:T-NSM robinson:N-NSM">husband</w>

Sometimes a word is translated into multiple words that are not adjacent.
<w lemma="aaa" split="1">xxx</w> <w lemma="bbb">yyy</w> <w lemma="aaa" split="1">zzz</w>
<w src="12" lemma="strong:G3856 lemma.TR:παραδειγματισαι" morph="robinson:V-AAN" type="x-split-393">to make</w> 
<w src="11" lemma="strong:G846 lemma.TR:αυτην" morph="robinson:P-ASF">her</w> 
<w src="12" lemma="strong:G3856 lemma.TR:παραδειγματισαι" morph="robinson:V-AAN" type="x-split-393">a publick example</w>

Sometimes a phrase as a whole can only be translated into another phrase.
<w lemma="aaa bbb">xxx yyy</w>
This is not common in the KJV except where we've included G3588 with the word it describes.
<w src="5 6" lemma="strong:G3588 strong:G3813 lemma.TR:το lemma.TR:παιδιον" morph="robinson:T-ASN robinson:N-ASN">the young child</w>
