15 Analysis Window - The Word Analysis Tab

 

The Word Analysis Tab displays lexical and other verse-specific information automatically as you move the mouse cursor over text in the Browse Window. The information displayed in the Word Analysis Tab depends on the nature of the text under the mouse cursor. For Greek text, the window displays parsing information and the default Greek dictionary entry for the current word.  For Hebrew text, the morphological information for the current word is displayed along with the default Hebrew Lexicon entry.

 

Except for the Bible versions published by the Lockman Foundation, most Strong's tagged versions display the corrected Strong's number (BDB and Thayer's Lexicon) information for the current word or phrase. The Lockman Foundation versions use a modified Strong's numbering system, and their own display data is used for the Lockman Bible versions tagged with Strong's numbers.
