As far as I can tell, it's a technique used by bible students to better understand the original languages in context.

How does one go about using a tool such as Robinson's Morphological Analysis Codes?

Edit: I've also asked this same question on Hermeneutics.SE.

This question was answered on Biblical Hermeneutics.SE.

Morphological analysis codes are used in the study of the original languages of the Bible. For example, a word might be listed with the morphological code "A-NPM," which would indicate the following:


  • Part of Speech: Adjective
  • Case: Nominative (subject; predicate nominative)
  • Number: Plural
  • Gender: Masculine
