[sword-devel] Question about strong morph and xiphos

Hi there !

I am confused.
Morphological code are about grammar parsing, not about lexicon entry.

Looking at the Byz and KJV module:
diatheke -b Byz -o mn -f FMT_OSIS -k Mark 1:1

For the first word with the Byz module:
<w lemma="strong:G746" morph="robinson:N-NSF" savlm="strong:G746">αρχη</w>

I have a the following output with the KJV module:
<w lemma="strong:G746" morph="robinson:N-NSF" savlm="strong:G746
lemma.TR:αρχη" src="1">The beginning</w>

Same strong number, (G746), same morph code (robinson:N-NSF)

If i use xiphos (packaged in debian 11), I can see both data with both
modules (after I enable the right click/ module options)
I also see more info for the morph code and strong lexicon in the
preview windows when the cursor touches a code.

What precisely do you mean by "KJV seems to me to use the morphology
of the numbers of Strong." ?

For Greek I found a solution by rewriting some modules like Byz and adding the links of the numbers of strong in Robinson's dictionary. So for Greek it is now possible to point morph="robinson:STRONGNUMBER". For Hebrew I don't have an equivalent. I tried to match the strong numbers that deal with morphology with the oshm dictionary, but it's way too complicated. I have also for test add the morphological strong numbers to the French strong dictionnary. This works with Bibletime, which looks in the strong dictionary for the corresponding number. But Xiphos is unfortunately unable to read this.
