Dr. Robert Holmstedt, Professor of Biblical Hebrew and West Semitic Languages at the University of Toronto, invites Accordance users attending the Society of Biblical Literature conference in Boston next week to submit Accordance syntax searches now that you’d like him to demonstrate in the Hebrew Bible or Dead Sea Scrolls in his upcoming session.
Accordance Syntactic Databases
Saturday, 9:00 AM–11:30 AM
Marriott Copley Place-Yarmouth (Fourth Level)
Syntactic Databases for Biblical and Early Jewish Texts: Please join us for a demonstration, with examples and discussion, of the research potential of the Accordance Bible syntax databases on the Hebrew Bible, Qumran texts, and New Testament. The basic principles of the tagging process will be briefly covered, but the focus will be on example searches and the more advanced linguistic issues relating to the databases, such as verbal valency. Attendees are encouraged to bring questions and sample searches for discussion.
From Dr. Holmstedt: "For those attending this session in Boston, we welcome submissions beforehand for desired searches you would like us to demonstrate on the Hebrew Bible or Dead Sea Scrolls."
You can email Dr. Holmstedt at [email protected] or post your questions in the comments, and we will make certain he receives them.
Have you discovered the ETCBC Hebrew Syntax in Accordance? The ETCBC Advanced database of the Hebrew Bible (formerly known as WIVU database), contains the scholarly text of the Hebrew Bible with linguistic markup developed by the Werkgroep Informatica at the Free University (WIVU) of Amsterdam and edited by Eep Talstra of the Eep Talstra Centre for Bible and Computer (ETCBC).
