I don’t know if this has been brought up before but there seems to be an issue with BHS/HMT tagging in the Aramaic texts of Daniel and Ezra. Perhaps there is an “option” somewhere for resolving this but I suspect it’s a bug.


With HALOT as my top Hebrew tool, when I hover my cursor over an Aramaic word, sometimes Instant Details brings up the correct Aramaic entry in HALOT but very frequently it brings up the (incorrect) Hebrew entry with the same root letters instead. This is particularly irritating in iOS but the same thing happens on Mac. Frequently this entry is a faux-ami.


Do others have the same problem? Is it resolvable?

On both Mac and iOS, if you amplify (triple-click or use the Amplify option) it does go to the Aramaic root. I agree, we need to fix the Instant Details to do the same, but in the meantime you can take that extra step to get the correct lexical entry.
