I'd like to have the Blass-Debrunner-Funk greek lexicon on Accordance. I've used other lexicons, but I keep coming back to this one. I don't know the logistics in procuring the rights and doing the conversion (or whatever). But, I like it and would buy it.

thanks,

Agreed regarding BDF, but I want the complete Liddel & Scott first! :)

Likewise (except that BDF is a *grammar* not a lexicon). I've been hunting the web site this afternoon for news on L&S. Only thing I could find past Helen's announcement last summer that it was under development was a page that listed "expected release Nov 2009." I'm *assuming* that it has not been released yet (I'd love to be wrong on that one! :) ), so wonder if there's any word as to whether I should save room on my Christmas budget or if it's going to have to roll over into 2010? (I *thought* I'd seen discussion of it more recently, but can't find it now.)

Of course. But the fact that they are both Greek resources created the association in my mind. And knowing these kinds of things are always a lot of work, I'd rather see Oak Tree prioritize the full L&S over BDF, although both are worthwhile.

I was about to post the same but found this. I would totally buy BDF if on Accordance; I would also love to see Smyth's grammar eventually. I'm stoked about Great Scott coming soon.

A digitized version would make navigating BDF much easier. I am eager to see this available in Accordance.

Add me to the list. IMO, this is standard text and I'm actually suppressed it hasn't been done yet. Not trying to criticize, just stating my thoughts. I know that digitization is a lot of work, more than most of us can imagine.

Digitization is definitely a lot of work, but keep in mind we're also talking about the publishing business where there are multiple layers of issues that affect the availability of a resource. So, I wouldn't be too surprised.

I agree!  I went looking for BDF just now and all I found was this thred.  Hopefully the powers that be will see our collective interest in the module.

It's a long standard work and continuously referenced, and I think Accordance will produce it eventually. Almost every scholar and student of Greek wouldn't hesitate to buy this module in Accordance.

Thanks for the votes of interest, all. The problem isn't interest, however. We've long wanted this resource, but will likely have to digitize it ourselves, which for a Greek grammar is a very laborious (aka time-consuming and expensive) process. Hope is not lost, it will just take time.
