I just realized that the LXX module does not tag for grammatical person (1, 2, 3) as the GNT module does. Is this also a recent blooper, or has it always been that way? If so, that is a tag that really ought to be added ASAP.

I see person tags on verbs in the LXX. Reflexive pronouns are not tagged in the LXX. The tagging of this text is not in our hands, and we have no control over the decisions made by the editor.

I'm looking at *personal* pronouns. I realize the text editor makes such decisions, but you can surely request such tagging. These would be relatively easy tags to add since it would be a mechanical process, not one requiring evaluation on a case-by-case basis.

My interest is in expanding the examples that I use to teach first year Greek into the LXX. More complete tagging, equivalent to the GNT-T text, would certainly facilitate cross-testament searches (even though they still have to be run separately; there is still hope of making that a one-step process I hope? :) ).

Meanwhile, perhaps Accordance should not enable entering tags in the Gram Tags dialog that are invalid? E.g., in the Verb Tag dialog several of the options are grayed out unless ptcp is selected. Likewise Accord ought to gray out LXX text tags that are not in the database.

I may be too late in my answer, but I think that in LXX1 and LXX2 Accordance can't alter the tagging, which is based on a project of the University of Pennsylvania. Strangely enough, they did not add the person to personal pronouns.

You can check the CATSS morphological tags here.

When Accordance has full control of the module, as in LXXS-T, personal pronoun are tagged as in GNT-T. Hopefully, it will be the same in the much awaited for Gottingen LXX.
