ETCBC is freely available for non-commercial use. It is FREE, but not cheap (a very rich database, indeed). It is one of the best databases (if not the most comprehensive one) for Hebrew bible study in terms of linguistic features. Accordance had recently released a module on ETCBC ( ... though not all ETCBC data is included ... ) with a pricey tag, i.e. US 99.90 ( https://www.accordan...s/?pid=MT-ETCBC ). ... though according to license information on ETCBC database, non-commercial distribution is FREE.
I had used data available in version 4b of ETCBC data to created BHSE collection and shared here at biblesupport.com, which I found this collection was well received:
e-Sword collection: http://www.biblesupp...rew-bible-bhse/
As I knew version 4c is the final stable version, so I only include basic materials for the previous BHSE collection. Many good features available in ETCBC database are missing in previous BHSE collection, though I made effort to make some enhancement on top of the data. Now, version 4c is out. I had created a collection of modules for use in MyBible app (I attached some screenshots here for your reference), based on the latest data. I include some more linguistic data for this collection. I would like to see if anyone is interested to have fit in MySword or e-Sword. Please reply to this post so that I may know and see if it worth converting the material to MySword or e-Sword.

Notes on lexemes:
The values of vocalized lexeme look like the values of the g_lex_utf8 feature of word occurrences, but they are not the same. The vocalized lexeme is an idealized (aka paradigmatic), pointed representation of the lexeme, which may or may not occur in the text. The g_lex_utf8 is the realized lexeme in a concrete occurrence, of which it may be a part.
Notes on part-of-speech:
Users may find of part-of-speech information appeared in morphology different from part-of-speech information in lexical entry. Part-of-speech information in morphology are phrase dependent part-of-speech. You may read more below on "phrase dependent part-of-speech".
Notes on phrase dependent part-of-speech:
The part of speech that is assigned to a word based on its phrase context rather than on its lexical identity.
