SInce the part of speech information is embedded in the Strong's linked texts, is it possible to have those elements in the English construct window that we can use to build more advanced English searches (e.g. verb, noun, ...)?

Along the same thought, it would be great to see syntax constructs for the tagged texts.

The matching of the words between the key texts and the tagged texts is done on the fly and is rather inexact. I see no point in trying to extend the match to another set of databases such as the syntax. The Key number tagging is only an approximation anyway. For example, Hebrew often has a repeat of the same root, either noun+verb or two forms of the verb. These may be tagged with the same Key number in English. Accordance does its best, but cannot match perfectly.

Only the MT-LXX Parallel really matches the words from the two versions. Until someone goes through and produces such parallels for other texts, a massive job, the Key number texts should be treated as useful aids and not as substitutes for studying the original text.

Thanks for the reply Helen. Yet another reason for me too learn biblical Greek. :)
