Hi David,

although I don't know Hebrew your works looks very good to me!
The old module we offer is really old, afaik. Creating improved version like 
you do is a very valuable work, I think.


> I am working on the Strong's Hebrew Dictionary data from the SWORD  module.
> I've converted it to an OSIS file, to work with as I translate, so  I can
> update and correct the data.  The OSIS I'm using right now is kind of 
> misusing some of the elements (and I have a few ideas to improve that) but
> I'm  waiting for the next release, and the promised dictionary format.  I'm
>  sending along a PDF sample of the words from Gen 1:1-2.  The order is 
> slightly different from Strong's, but it's the best I could do at my
> current  level of XSLT.
> The entries, as they stand, are set up:
> 1. Strong number
> 2. Hebrew  word: this is one of the main things I want to add.  They don't
> seem to be  readily available, in the public domain on the internet.
> 3. Transliteration:  I have two versions, separated by a pipe: the SBL
> standard | the original from  the file.  One of my questions is, which one
> would be best in an updated  module, once I finish the work?
> 4. Pronunciation
> 5. Part of speech:  another addition.  Would it be good to include?
> 6. Source
> 7.  Variants: Some words have several variant spellings.  Generally the
> format  is: text, Hebrew, transliteration, pronunciation, [text].
> 8. Definition and  KJV usage
> 9. My usage: just a personal record of how I'm using the word in
> translation.  This won't be in the final module.
> 10. Root: comparing  with Brown, Driver, Briggs and the Theological
> Wordbook of the Old Testament:  again, should this be included?
> The work may take some time to complete, but any suggestions about content
> and format of the final data file would be appreciated.
> Peace,
> David
