Greek New Testament Syntax Trees (Nestle 1904)


Last modified: 21 Dec, 2016

This is based on the 1904 edition of Eberhard Nestle's Greek New Testament, often referred to as the Nestle 1904 or British Foreign Bible Society 1904.

These syntax trees were automatically generated, then carefully corrected by hand. Please report any errors you encounter.

Current markup scheme:

Cat = Part-of-speech Category
Rule = Rule used to combine nodes—some of these are arbitrary, some make meaningful distinctions (for example, when two nouns are connected together, we have different rules differentiating apposition, genitive modification, or two nouns conjoined/juxtaposed without conjunction in between).
Start = indicates starting position of the node in the tree
End = indicates ending position of the node in the tree (at the word level start & end would be the same; at a higher node, e.g., a multi-word phrase, the starting & ending position indicates the span of the multi-word phrase)
Person = grammatical person
Number = grammatical number
Gender = grammatical gender
Case = grammatical case
Degree = degree of adjectives
Tense = grammatical tense of verbs
Voice = grammatical voice of verbs
Mood = grammatical mood of verbs
Relative = appears only with pronouns, will have True value if pronoun is a Relative pronoun
Personal = appears only with pronouns, will have True value if pronoun is a Personal pronoun
Demonstrative = appears only with pronouns, will have True value if pronoun is a Demonstrative pronoun
Interrogative = appears only with pronouns, will have True value if pronoun is an Interrogative pronoun
Unicode = Unicode of surface text
UnicodeLemma = Unicode of lexical lemma
morphId = morphId was developed as unique ID for building our translation memory & a host of other interlinear tools
nodeId = BBCCCVVVWWWSSSL as previously noted, where WWW represents the beginning position (the Nth word) of a node/sub-tree SSS represents the SPAN of a node (how many words it covers) L (Level) is used to distinguish nodes which have the same span (in cases of non-branching nodes)

The following only occur in non-terminal nodes:

ClType = This occurs only for CL nodes. By default, there is no Type value--all clauses with V or VC (any verbal form) have no value. It is the clauses without a V or VC (any verbal form) that have Type value to distinguish Verbless from VerbElided clauses
HasDet = Has True value when a phrase has a determiner included in it
