Thread: Missing entries in LSJM Lexicon (Unabridged)?

    Default Missing entries in LSJM Lexicon (Unabridged)?

    Hi,
    Reading a journal article I had to verify a reference to LSJM s.v. erchomai. The Lexicon Browser did not find the main entry, but only the supplement entry under eryw.

    Maybe my copy of LSJM is broken, but is there something I overlook, or is there something missing? I do not have the printed lexicon available, but comparing it to the Logos edition, the "freq. of the dead" (marked with red in my screenshot) belongs to the eryw entry, while the rest is from the erchomai entry.

    Do you see the same problem in your LSJM Lexicon (Unabridged)?

    Best regards,

    yes it is a "known" problem so to speak from the original scanning and production of LSJM. I reported it in beta-testing in 2007, so I don't think it's likely to ever get fixed. To be fair, many errors reported have been corrected, but since this one hasn't.

    Thank you for the reply. I also found similar problems when beta-testing years ago and wondered whether somehow I had reinstalled an old version. Probably not.

    no i think it was just a matter of high effort vs limited returns. The BW folks were pretty frustrated with the scanning problems that they paid others to do. There wasn't really a way to go back and fix every last error, but they made good faith effort to fix a lot of the problems. then it's probably just a matter of making decision for continuing to put resources forward on other new projects vs. cleaning up all the errors in others. The LSJM that they have isn't perfect by any means, but neither is the other versions of it either, electronic or otherwise. That's an annoying problem with our e-world. We thought it would make it easier to fix mistakes in texts/databases, but in reality it also introduces new ones.

    I was one who reported this LSJM omission years ago. Here is what happened:
    LSJM page 693 was included twice and the next page (694) omitted entirely. A number of entries display twice, with different numbers:
    from 24662 evruqri/noj
    I have a file to which I regular add LSJM errors. I have volunteered to make the corrections, but such corrections cannot be made by users. I tried, and my "corrected" file cannot be read by BibleWorks.
