Paradigmatic aims to help you learn and re-learn Biblical verb paradigms, both Hebrew and Greek. Any student of Biblical languages should find this program useful. We will assume a certain level of knowledge of Greek and/or Hebrew - it won't teach you fundamental grammar - but it will help you drill in and learn what you already know. You can view whole paradigms, test your recognition skills, and view a whole range of grammar tables relating to Biblical Greek and Hebrew.
What's New
Version 1.0.2:

Now with Greek!

Changes:

  • Extra Aorist/Perfect participle information for select -μι verbs, for you masochists out there.

Bug Fixes:

  • Greek Parser Fix: Correct entry now no longer displays user selection, rather it tells you the actual entry.
  • Greek Parser Fix: Multiple entry drawer now opens when a given word matches more than one entry.
  • Greek Parser Fix: If constraints are selected in the middle of parsing a word, system resets itself to a sensible state.

Known issues:

  • On Leopard Systems, drop-down sheets appear to function differently, and don't yet work properly in Paradigmatic. This means that the Editor functionality won't work properly if you've got OS X 10.5 installed. Sorry, I can't promise I'll have this fixed any time soon (unless someone wants to sponsor development by buying me a copy of Leopard, or even Snow Leopard... ).

Paradigmatic Version 1.0.1

Bug Fixes:

  • Nasty bug which didn't properly create an initial database for clean/new installs fixed. (Thanks Bek.)
  • Signed application for Sparkle updates - now you can be sure you're getting Paradigmatic from me, not some malicious source.

Paradigmatic Version 1.0.0

Changes:

  • Greek:
    • Entire functionality of Hebrew Paradigmatic extended to cover Koine Greek. This is obviously a big change:
      • Data includes entire verb table for λυω, and the majority of info (principal parts) for a number of irregular verbs
      • Viewing, parsing, and editing works as for Hebrew.
      • Grammar Aids include Noun/Article/Pronoun tables, letter combination rules, and a verbal aspect summary (according to Constantine Campbell).
  • Hebrew:
    • Nomenclature can be altered in the Preferences window, allowing switching between Aspectual labels (Qatal, Yiqtol, etc.) or Temporal labels (Perfect, Imperfect, etc.).
    • Qal Wayyiqtol קטל corrected.
    • When selecting sets for parsing, answer drop-down menus are selected automatically to make answering quicker.
  • General:
    • Save disabled when paradigm/entry sheets disabled, to avoid data corruption
    • Only one window of each type (viewer, parser, etc.) can be opened, as the buttons are disabled when windows open, and are only enabled on closing.
Version 1.0.2:

Now with Greek!

Changes:

  • Extra Aorist/Perfect participle information for select -μι verbs, for you masochists out there.

Bug Fixes:

  • Greek Parser Fix: Correct entry now no longer displays user selection, rather it tells you the actual entry.

Many thanks to the developer(s). This program is absolutely FABULOUS !

I studied NT Greek & OT Hebrew/Aramaic (years ago) when I was in seminary and I wish I had had this tool all along. These days my Greek & Hebrew are sketchy, but I intend to put in 5 minutes each study day going over some of these charts. Hopefully this will jog my memory.

Also, if you want real help with your Greek & Hebrew reading skills, look into Concordia Seminary's "Lectionary at Lunch" series on their website. That has helped me ENORMOUSLY in my personal study. The sessions are available as podcasts through the iTunes store and are completely FREE. They are FABULOUS for improving one's familiarity and comfort with the original languages.

Good providence!
