  1. I really love construct searches and use them all the time. The one thing I would find really helpful though is, if the actual construct could somehow be minimized or something. As it is, if I have a key, a word and then I add a parallel to my construct, and then I have another window open where I am comparing the construct results, the windows start getting really narrow because of the construct. Even though I have only one parallel open, the construct takes the space as if I have two parallels open, which really causes space issues on my screen. I hope this is clear, and thank you for your consideration of this. Kristin
  2. Key G5456 is normally translated as "voice" in the ESV, but not always, and I wanted to find all the instances where it is translated as something other than voice. I would normally put the key in a Greek construct search and do a "NOT" command and that works. This time, however, instead of doing a construct search I just put my key into the search bar, then I did NOT and the English word voice. This appeared to work, but then later on I was noticing some verses which had not come up. Was this just human error and I missed them? Or do the results of a construct search and normal search sometimes differ? Thanks, Kristin
  3. I am pretty new to using this feature and am having some confusion about Construct Searches. My goal is to find ALL the instances in the ESV where מַלְאָךְ is NOT translated as "angel." Since I know you can only guarantee all the hits with the Hebrew, I did the search typing the Hebrew, then trying to say it does not match "angel" but the system complained that the words don't match. So I then tried it with the key number, but am having similar issues. I know this is user error but I am just confused. I would appreciate clarification how to do this, hopefully using the Hebrew to make sure I get all the hits. Thank you for your help and in case it is helpful (which it likely is not) here is a screenshot at my failed attempt. Sincerely, Kristin
  4. The new ability to generate a construct search automatically from selected text is very helpful in learning to use the construct search capability. A natural use case is to modify the resulting construct to find related but not identical constructions. Sometimes this requires deleting a column internal to the construct. For example, starting with Gen 5:22 וַיִּתְהַלֵּךְ חֲנוֹךְ אֶת־הָאֱלֹהִים, I'd like to drop the subject phrase column to search for other cases of walking with God. But simply deleting the subject phrase entry leaves an empty column, which the parser doesn't accept. What's the simplest way to remove a column in the middle of a construct search?

    #135) Syntax

    [Accordance 11.1.4 Advanced] Over the past few years we’ve worked hard to make our original language syntax searches faster, more accurate, and more intuitive. In this podcast, Dr. J demonstrates the value of the add-on HB and GNT syntactical databases. He also offers guidance in how to use Syntax Trees, perform syntactical Word Searches, and hone our syntactical Construct Searches. A working knowledge of Greek or Hebrew will help viewers get the most out of this episode. http://accordancefiles2.com/podcasts/p135_syntax.mp4
  6. Hello. I find the syntax searches very interesting, although I have to say that I would prefer that all the syntax where divided into standard categories like: subject, direct object, indirect objekt, conditional clause etc, and not the confusing (and very broad) categories like predicate and adjunct. Perhaps this function is genius and I'ts just me not understanding the how to use it ? Well, my question is: How can I find all the genitives in NA28 which functions as a direct object?
  7. Hi! I am trying to find possible identifications for a Qumran fragment with letters that represent the beginnings of lines, so the beginnings of words. I know how to use construct search in Hebrew with the inflect box in order to find words with n to m words in between them that correspond to the wildcard search I set. But I do not find information how to add the criterion that these letters should be at the beginning of words. If I add a space before them, the tool still looks for the letters at the beginning of a morpheme, so at many different positions also inside a word. Many thanks for help. Daniel
  8. Question How do I Ignore bracketed words/phrases in a Hebrew construct search? (and vice versa: How can I search on the qere (and/or) bracketed words/phrases and ignore the ketiv?) Description: This query attempts to find every verse in the Hebrew Bible where there is an occurrence of two atnach accents. Results: Five verses namely: (1) Gen. 35:22 (2) Ex. 20:2 (3) Ex. 20:5 (4) 2 Kings. 23:10 (false hit: picks up the bracketed [qere] as well as the ketiv) (5) 1 Chr. 10:1 ( the only verse in the early BHS printings and the Westminster morphology were two consecutive/repetitive atnach appear. The Leningrad Codex has an atnach followed by a mhuppak accent mark). It is easy to read through and eliminate hits I believe to be false or irrelevant. However, I am curious if there is a way to configure the construct search engine so that it automatically ignores words/phrases in brackets? Screen Shot / picture: Any help, hints, or constructive advice (pun intended) would be greatly appreciated, Brian

    #142) Introducing Construct Searches

    At long last, we have a new podcast on Construct Searches. #142) Introducing Construct Searches, replaces the very old #19) Construct Searches. It introduces all types of Construct Searches, Simple, Greek, and Hebrew and is available here: https://vimeo.com/170110178 We've already found one mistake in the podcast since it was published, though: "Part." in the Hebrew Construct search under Column Items>Parts of Speech does not stand for "Participle," but "Particle." My bad—and my apologies.
