View Full Version : Interlinear Mode

Can anyone tell me how to get the interlinear function to work. It's listed on the popdown but it doesn't have a check mark by it. I haven't been able to figure out how to get it to work.

If I can't have an interlinear I can't keep the program :(

Is it an add on :confused: If so, I couldn't figure out which one it is to add it on.

Thanks for any help.

You need to have a morphological version activated.
For example, in the command line, type d bgm (or d wtm) to display a Greek (or Hebrew) morph version.

Then be in browse mode and make sure the interlinear is enabled from View.

And in BibleWorks, the "interlinear" that you get with BGM and WTM provides an interlinear that gives the lexical entry in Hebrew or Greek with interlinear notes about grammatical parsing, not with an interlinear English gloss printed on-screen.

If you want to read English, and see which Hebrew or Greek word it represents, you need to use one of the English translations that are keyed to the Greek and Hebrew by Strong's numbersing system, such as KJV, NAS, or NAU. Then you can can hover your cursor over any word and see the Greek or Hebrew.

If youwant to read Hebrew or Greek and see what the English is, you can use the Hebrew, Septuagint, and Greek New Testaments and hover your cursor over the word in question to get anything from a brief gloss (i.e., definition) to a full lexicon article on the word.

In short, "interlinear" is the static form demanded by a printed text, and the more dynamic form allowed by computerized hot links is what the previous two paragraphs describe. This dynamic largely eliminates any need for an interlinear, even if you know little or no Hebrew or Greek.

And if you want to go even further though with limited or no Hebrew and Greek skills, go to Help/Online Help Contents/Using Strong's Numbers for a nice video lesson on how to use Strong's numbers for doing a word study linked to the original languages.
