One of my frustrations is attempting to lookup a greek word in a lexicon but to no avail because I don’t have the diacritics when I enter the Greek word on my iPad. I love the Zodhiates in hard copy and want to buy and d/l the module to my iPad. Before I do, can anyone tell me if I can merely enter the Greek word, without diacritics, and get the result or are the diacritics necessary for word search?

I think that is dependent on the dictionary resource. If the dictionary has the diacritics, and you search the word without them, I think (though not absolutely certain) you should be able to find that word. That said, said, the actual Greek word, but not the transliteralized word, doesn't have the diacritics.

I have the Wordstudy dictionaries and I use them as I do other lexicons. They are all organized by Strong’s number so I don’t enter Greek lemmas. Maybe others use them differently. I attached a screen shot of how it looks when I use it to check out the Greek word translated as “beginning” in John 1:4. I realize it is not a great screenshot, but I think you can see when I mean.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I do the same with my other lexicons, e.g., OGNT, LSJ, etc. So it’s great if you have the G or GK number. But suppose I do not know the G number or the meaning; if I attempt to look up “αρχη” (without the diacritics) in those lexicons, I get nothing. So my question is: if I do not know the meaning or the G number and I enter αρχη (without diacritics)in the search function of Zodhiates, will I get a result?

The Word Study dictionaries in e-sword are designed to be used with the Strong's number system. I tried entering the Greek word with and without the diacritics and the dictionary will not search on them. Using the KJV+ Strong's bible version gives me the inline Strong's number and when that is selected, the lexicon comes up. That is the only way I know to use lexicons within e-sword is via Strong's numbers.

Thanks again for replying. You have been helpful. BTW, there is a way to lookup without G numbers and/or gloss. Go to:

https://www.billmoun...reek-dictionary

and enter the Greek word without diacritics. Also can use gloss, G# etc.

I just change my computer and i started installing esword and downloading module. However, i found it that Complete Word Study Dictionary is listed with red color and could not be downloaded. Is there anyone facing the same problem with me?

Thank you for your attention and help. God bless.
