When you enter a verb tag, one of the Voice items (the last) is deponent (and it's in italics - why?)

With GNT-T or LXX1 as my search texts, there are no deponents found in either of these texts. So where are they? Is it possible to search all texts for a tag? I can't do it from the search all box.

I presume the item is there because somewhere there are deponents. I would love to find them, but where are they?

Hey Ken,

Since deponents have the dictionary entry ending with -μαι, I just did a search with:


It seems to have accomplished it.

Deponent is in italics in the list which means it's used in Latin but not in Greek. It does work in the Vulgate-T.

There is no specific tag for deponency in the GNT. The only way to see deponency in the texts is to observe the lemma. If the LEMMA is a middle form, such as ercomai then any middle form is deponent. If the lemma is an active form, then any middle form is a true middle.
