View Full Version : Query -- How to get Greek Lemma Only

09-26-2005, 03:47 PM
Hello everyone!

I wonder if there is anyone who's either done or knows how to query the database for every unique greek word (lemma only).

The Word List Manager is very useful to retrieve every unique word, however this includes all morphology. I'm interested in getting only the lemma/root word.

I know that searching the Strongs numbers is sort of the same thing, but I'd like to do it through querying the STM (STE) or SCM (SCR) if possible.

Any advice, examples are greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Just use the word list manager and choose SCM or STM as your version. These morphological versions have only the root words in their databases, so your word list will have only roots. E.g. the word eimi will be in the list but estin and eisin, etc. will not, because they are considered forms of eimi. In a second you will have a list of all the roots or lemmas in the version you choose. Be sure not to check "Keep morph codes" and you'll get just the lemmas.

I hope this is what you wanted.

Yes! It was exactly what I was looking for.

I didn't look far enough, there it was. Great help. Thank you Mark!


This answers the question, how many individual Greek lemma's there are in the new testament. (5362 words) -- SCM
