For My Students

I received an email notice yesterday that the latest version of Greek morphological/lexical tool Kalós has been released. Kalós does a job one wished one didn’t need, and does it very well: it analyzes forms to give the parsing information (full information for nouns, adjectives, pronouns, and verbs – including participles), with simple glosses.

It’s not perfect; it stumbled over εἶπον / eipon, the first strong aorist form I gave it (it actually stumbled first over εἶπαν / eipan; I was checking for strong aorist forms with weak aorist endings). It knows εἶδον / eidon, though, so I’m not sure why it doesn’t know εἶπον / eipon.

It’s nagware, but I think it’s worth the fee — and if you’re on a straitened student budget, you can just enter the pseudoregistration number repeatedly.
