An important part of our Bible translation checking software is the ability for the translators and editors to look up Greek words or phrases in a reliable lexicon. Again, we are faced with the problem that Greek lexica in the public domain are very much out of date and modern lexica are bound by copyright restrictions. In an effort to solve this difficulty we are developing our own Greek lexicon.
The lexicon will provide:
The starting point for the lexicon will be G. Abott-Smith, A Manual Greek Lexicon of the New Testament, 1922.
The UGL will be released in versions:
The first version will be a digitized edition of Abbott-Smith, as originally published. This effort is currently in progress (see https://github.com/translatable-exegetical-tools/Abbott-Smith and https://github.com/biblicalhumanities/Abbott-Smith ).
The next step will be to update the glosses and definitions in light of current Greek lexica (enumerated below).
The long-term goal is to revise the lexicon so that it is a corpus-driven advanced learner's Greek-English lexicon. For details about this approach, see Todd L. Price, Structural Lexicology and the Greek New Testament: Applying Corpus Linguistics for Word Sense Possibility Delimitation Using Collocational Indicators, Perspectives on Linguistics and Ancient Languages 6 (Piscataway, NJ: Gorgias, 2015).
The UGL will be linked to UGNT and UGG.
