Preference to not display smooth breathing marks on Greek text
Posted 05 December 2012 - 10:23 PM
So far as I know, no ancient Greek texts or ancient Greek mss have them anyway.
Thus I would like a preferences option to eliminate all smooth breathings from Greek texts.

Accordance will have a preference to mark which causes no smooth breathings will appear.
The rationale is that
1) the smooth breathing has only the negative purpose of confusing someone with a rough breathing mark,
2) the smooth breathing is not a feature of the ancient manuscripts, so one is not altering a jot or a tittle of God's word by eliminating them.
The logic does not say that one should read the uncials & papyri only. The request is not to dispense with all modern editing. Word spacing and rough breathings are helpful editing. The only modern editing to be eliminated (& that only for those who want to eliminate it) is the smooth breathings.
