TSV files of the Parallel Bible Reader
The Parallel Bible Reader is an online tool which makes it possible to study the Bible's verses in several languages and periods in parallel. It is based on the historical text material of the Old Hungarian Corpus, as its database contains all of the Old and Middle Hungarian Bible translations which are available in this corpus. The King James Bible and three Finnish translations are included in the database as well. This repository contains the files of the Parallel Bible Reader database in TSV format.
The naming convention of the TSV files
All TSV files are named following the pattern 'abbreviation_type.tsv', where abbreviation indicates the Bible translation and type shows whether it is in its original orthographic form (b = betűhű), in normalized form (n = normalizált) or it is a modern translation (m = modern).
The structure of the TSV files
The first three columns of the file contain locus markers:
- 1st column: the abbreviation of the book
- 2nd column: the chapter
- 3rd column: the verse
The 4th column contains the text of the given verse. If one verse has several translations, these are separated by §§. Thus, §§ is not a part of the original translation. In versions which are presented in their original orthographic forms, @@ stands for original line breaks and == marks cases where two distinct words were written as one word in the original resource.
Resources available as TSV files
The list of available Bible translations can be found on the Parallel Bible Reader website. It can only be found in Hungarian, but we will provide an English translation soon.
