Perseus Morphology Note


(Applicable both to public and subscription version of the site.)


The Morphology links are available through the excellent facility offered by the Perseus Digital Library - Clicking on a word in the original language texts will open up a subwindow linked to the online Morphology and Dictionary. It is recommended that you set the "Configure Display" facility at Perseus to "Unicode (UTF-8)". Note that not all word forms will be found in the Perseus Morphology. There is nothing that can do about this. Sometimes Perseus may be a little slow in responding - again there is little that can be done about this. It would be possible to link to the "Perseus 4" Morphology, which could be a little quicker, but at the last time of testing it did not seem to have anything like such a wide range of word cover. Note that if you move the mouse pointer over any menu then the morphology window will disappear. So be careful not to do this if you are still studying the morphology information. This may be annoying if the morphology window disappears unexpectedly!  The website is designed like that so that menu entries are never hidden by subwindows.

A growing number of texts also have a morphology which is on the earlychurchtexts server.  This is useful if there are problems with accessing the Perseus server. For this resource acknowledgment is given to Perseus for the electronic versions of the lexicons and the morphology lookup facility, and to Peter Heslin, programmer of Diogenes, for some of the code used for the implementation on this site. A little tidying up of the locally based system is still required and the word coverage may not be exhaustive.
