putting together existing accentuation code to explain accentuation of each word in GNT

At the moment it's focused on describing the rules around proclitics and enclitics. analyse_morphgnt.py will output something like the following (for the entire SBLGNT, which I've committed as accent-analysis.txt):

011037 #::----:1A::##--::---#--:-----:--::-:--# οὐκ οὐ οὐ
011037 #::--#-:--::--##::----#-:-----:E#::-:--# ἔστιν ἐστί(ν) εἰμί
011037 -::----:E#::--#-::------:-----:--::-:--- μου μου ἐγώ

What this is basically saying (in compact form) is:

  • οὐκ is not the same as its normalised form οὐ
  • οὐκ is preceded by an oxytone
  • οὐκ is a proclitic
  • οὐκ is an exception to the way ἐστίν is accented
  • οὐκ has a movable (kappa)
  • οὐκ is followed by an enclitic
  • ἔστιν is not the same as its normalised form ἐστί(ν)
  • ἔστιν is preceded by a proclitic
  • ἔστιν is preceded by an unaccented word
  • ἔστιν is an enclitic
  • ἔστιν is a dissyllabic enclitic
  • ἔστιν is a variant of ἐστί
  • ἔστιν is preceded by a word that causes it to be accented ἔστιν
  • ἔστιν is followed by an enclitic
  • μου is preceded by a the specially-accented ἔστι
  • μου is enclitic

It makes it easy to both match certain conditions like "find all the enclitics with a preceding accented proclitic which are themselves also accented because what follows is another enclitic" and also verify that a text has been accented correctly according to the rules (or verify the rules adequately explain the accentuation of the text).

Lots more coming! I soon plan to incorporated parts of greek-accentuation to annotate why verbs are accented the way they are and eventually nominals.
