Improving the tWs

Please use the issue queue to provide feedback or suggestions for improvement.

If you want to make your suggested changes then you may use the online editor to do so. See the protected branch workflow document for step by step instructions.

Structure

The tWs are organized into three sub directories under bible.

  • kt is for "key terms" in the Bible which we consider to be of first importance.
  • other terms, these are still important but not critical.
  • names is where we've grouped proper names.
