General Syriac Tools

Collected on this page are some of the tools that I developed to aid in my analysis of Syriac texts in support of my thesis. All of these tools can be selected from the Tools menu on the right. A description of each of the tools will be found below. Additionally, there is a collection of Frequently Asked Questions in the menu on the right.

Manuscript Generator
The Manuscript Generator allows one to display the surface text from the various Syriac texts stored within my morphological database. Logos style milestone tags are added. Currently the Odes of Solomon and Aphrahat are referenced by datatags that do not exist within Logos. That will be fixed as soon as I have discovered (or they have added) datatags for these works. Eventually, if the Logos PBB tool ever allows morphological tagging with the PBB, SEDRA and CAL morphological tagging will be added to these texts. Maybe I'll even get up the energy to have this tool directly create a downloadable DOCX file.
Verb Charts
The Verb Charts tool generates verb paradigms for a selected verb. At this time only verbs found in the Demonstrations of Aphrahat may be selected, however verbs from the SEDRA database will soon be added. Also, at this time, paradigms are only generated for verbs with three strong radicals. Weak verbs, geminates, and quadraliterals will be added soon.
