  Original Annotation

  • This repository contains the XML files for the three levels: 1. base [word], 2. word group and 3. clause levels of the model.

  • This annotation was completed in 2006 and was made available for viewing on the website and also implemented in Logos bible search software.

  • The syntactic annotation was carried out over the NA27 eclectic text. Because of copyright the inflected word forms have been excluded from the base level XML files in this repository.

  • More details about the annotation model are available in this article.

Base level

  • The base level XML contains:

    1. milestone elements for chapter and verse segments
    2. <w> word elements that contain:
      1. part-of-speech information <pos>
      2. word form information <wf> - N.B. for copyright reasons inflected forms are missing*
      3. semantic domain informaion <sem>
  • Example segment of base XML:

<book name="Phlm">
  <chapter sID="NT.Phlm.1" num="1"/>
  <verse sID="NT.Phlm.1.1" num="1"/>
  <w xml:id="NT.Phlm.w1" ref="NT.Phlm.1.1">
      <NON num="sing" cas="nom" gen="mas"/>
    <wf betaLex="*pau=los" lex="Παῦλος"></wf>
      <domain majorNum="93" subNum="294"/>
  <w xml:id="NT.Phlm.w2" ref="NT.Phlm.1.1">
