SBLGNT Lowfat: Greek New Testament Syntax Trees
Last modified: 6 Jan, 2017
These syntax trees were created to be easier to query and to display using standard Web technologies. They are called "lowfat" because they are simpler and have fewer nodes than the equivalent GBI trees: about 1/2 as many elements, and about 1/3 as many attributes.

This is an example of the current markup scheme:
<milestone unit="verse" n="John.11.35">John.11.35</milestone> <wg class="sentence"> <wg class="cl"> <wg role="v" class="vp" head="true"> <w class="verb" osisId="John.11.35!1" lemma="δακρύω" normalized="ἐδάκρυσεν" strong="1145" number="singular" person="third" tense="aorist" voice="active" mood="indicative" head="true">ἐδάκρυσεν</w> </wg> <wg role="s" class="np" articular="true" det="true"> <w class="det" osisId="John.11.35!2" lemma="ὁ" normalized="ὁ" strong="3588" number="singular" gender="masculine" case="nominative">ὁ</w> <wg class="np" head="true"> <w class="noun" type="proper" osisId="John.11.35!3" lemma="Ἰησοῦς" normalized="Ἰησοῦς" strong="2424" number="singular" gender="masculine" case="nominative" head="true">Ἰησοῦς</w> <pu>.</pu> </wg> </wg> </wg> </wg>
Here is an overview of this format:
- <sentence> is, obviously, a sentence. Sentences are determined based purely on punctuation used in the original text.
- <cite> is a citation that identifies the text in a sentence.
- <wg> stands for "word group", and is used to identify a group of words.
- <w> stands for "word", and identifies a single word.
A <wg> can have the following attributes:
- nodeId: an identifier for the <wg> node
- class: the class of the word group. Permitted values: np cl pp vp adjp advp nump adv conj
- role: the clause-level role of the world group. Permitted values: s v vc o p io o2 adv
A <w> can have the following attributes:
- morphId: identifier for the word occurrence
- class: the class of the word. Permitted values: noun verb det conj pron prep adj adv ptcl num int
- role: the clause-level role of the word. Permitted values: s v vc o io o2 p adv
- head: 'true' if the word is the head of the phrase.
- discontinuous: 'true' if the word is discontinuous with respect to sentence order due to reordering in the syntax tree
- lemma: the lemma of the word
- person: first, second, or third
- number: singular or plural
- gender: masculine, feminine, or neuter
- case: nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, or vocative
- tense: aorist, present, imperfect, future, perfect, or pluperfect
- voice: active, passive, middle, or middlepassive
- mood: indicative, imperative, subjunctive, optative, participle, or infinitive
