I got the bundle downloaded and extracted. For now, I have only put the Strong's and BDB with Thayer dictionaries and the Greek interlinear in the program. I may not use the other files for now, or even for a long while.
I have never seen a Greek interlinear like this before. But it sure is an interesting layout. I am attaching a screen shot of how it appears at Romans chp. 1. Is this the correct font and layout and everything? (I hope it looks OK, when the post comes through, as I had to change it from a jpeg to a gif, as the former was to large a file).
First, that is the weirdest looking Pi I have ever seen. It will take some getting used to, but I will adjust.
If one roles over the numbers superscripted beside a word, a screen pops up with the Greek word in red, transliteration, pronunciation, and definition. 1. Note the words in the text do not have accents, but in the pop up screen they do. I guess the missing accents in the text does not matter. 2. the definitions are brief but good, which also can be a very nice approach. 3. The pronunciations are the best I have seen. This pronuciation guide is a really great. In seminary, they do not teach pronunciation, which is why just about no one really masters Greek. They are not learning the language but how to decode the language. It is a major teaching mistake. And trying to learn correct pronunciation on one's own is difficult, unless one has a guide such as this, and then, YouTube videos can help a lot, when done by someone Greek. So this feature of the software is really nice.
I was looking at the BDB with Thayer's and the Strong's dictionary. I don't know what I can do with these dictionaries, as the index does not work, as far as I know. If I click the index icon, a window pops up. If I type in a word, a screen comes up saying the AV-Strong Index is not loaded, while giving me a link to buy the bundle. This happens if I am in Strong's or BDB/Thayer. So, there is no way to navigate the dictionary. Of course, with the interlinear, the Strong's definition does come up in the little window that appears by rolling over the number. I wonder, would that pop up window with Strong's entry, if the Strong's dictionary were not installed?
Hmmm... maybe, I should install the other files temporarily, just to see how they work.
Well, this is enough for today.
