(Disclaimer: I don't know Greek, and I'm partly just guessing about 
Greek grammar here.) I think this is just encoded incorrectly. Arguably, 
we're hampered by some limitation of the engine, but I would encode this as:

<w lemma="strong:G3962" morph="robinson:N-GSM" src="8">of</w>
<transChange type="added"><w lemma="strong:G3588" morph="robinson:T-GSM" 
<w lemma="strong:G3962" morph="robinson:N-GSM" src="8">father</w>

If the other 16 instances are of a similar character, I think we could 
just re-encode to correct the issue.
