By morphology codes do you mean the declensions and parts of speech in the
Koine Greek language? If so, a good place to start is the Greek/Hebrew Key
Study Bible by Spiros Zodhiates, published by AMG. It has part-of-speech,
tense, mood, voice, etc. codes of many Greek and Hebrew words right in the
Bible text. (I have one).

I am interested in this, although I don't know realistically how much help I
could be. :-) I have wanted to see the same improvements in the Greek texts.
Semi-related: Why is the "Thayer" lexicon no different from the "Strongs
Greek" lexicon? When I saw Thayer's was a module, I nearly went ballistic
with joy. I was dissapointed to find it wasn't Thayer's after all.
