Back in The Core Vocabulary of New Testament Greek I talked about Wilfred Major’s 2008 paper on core vocabulary lists for Classical Greek and provided code for producing the same for the Greek New Testament along with some discussion of the results. I didn’t actually include the full results, however.
Prompted by Paul-Nitz’s request on the B-Greek forum, I put together https://github.com/jtauber/core-gnt-vocab which includes not only the code but actually generated lists (currently 50% and 80% lemma lists).
I’ve included as a starting point glosses from Dodson but I’d love people to file issues (or even better, pull requests) if they have improvements they’d like to see.
I’m also interested if people think certain lexeme should be split like Major does (e.g. suppletive verbs).
