ETCBC Syntax of the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (Syntax)
This module requires Accordance version 13 or above and the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia with ETCBC Morphology (MT-ETCBC).
NOTE: This Syntax will NOT work alongside the similar apparatus text (MT-ETCBC-A).
This product is not supported in Accordance Lite. The Mobile Accordance app has very limited support at present for the syntax modules.
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).
Eep Talstra was the founder of the Eep Talstra Centre for Bible and Computer. The centre was previously known as the Werkgroep Informatica Vrije Universiteit (WIVU), was renamed in honor of Eep Talstra when he retired in 2012.
The Eep Talstra Center for Bible and Computer focuses not only on Hebrew and Greek sources, but also on Syriac literature.

Syntax is fairly good but open to variant interpretation (Just like different scholars translate the Bible differently, so different scholars interpret the syntax of various verses and phrases in the Hebrew Bible differently).
The syntax is easier to use and less complicated than the Andersen Forbes module, though not as detailed.
Automatic construct searches only work for very basic searches. When a complicated automatic construct search is done, it finds no matches. Not even the verse from which the construct search was automatically formed.
