  1. I need to find all instances in the Hebrew Bible of spirantized BGDKPT letters (without dagesh) immediately following a shwa, for example: מַלְכֵי (Gen 17:16). However, a few caveats: 1. The consonant over the shwa can't have a dagesh. Example: הַצְּבֹעִים (FirstSam 13:18) shouldn't show up. 2. The consonant over the shwa can't be the first letter in the word. Example: גְּבוּל (Gen 10:19) shouldn't show up. 3. The above restriction also applies across morphological boundaries! Example: בִּנְפֹל (Isa 30:25) should show up, since the nun is the first letter of the lexeme but not of the entire word unit. Essentially, I'd like to find examples of these spirantized BGDKPT consonants in places where—according to the simplified Hebrew grammar rules we often give students—they shouldn't exit, i.e. after closed syllables. I've tried multiple ways of doing this but always run into problems. I haven't even been able to do it for a single BGDKPT letter yet! So here's some of what I've tried, with כ as an example: Problems: - Doesn't satisfy #1 above. - Doesn't satisfy #2 above either. Example: Still shows בְּכֹרוֹ (Gen 10:15). - Doesn't satisfy #3 above. - Missing some examples like מַלְכֵי (Gen 17:16). - Satisfied #2 above Problems: - Doesn't satisfy #1 above. - Doesn't satisfy #3 above. - Missing some examples like מַלְכֵי (Gen 17:16). - Related to #3, it's missing cases where the consonant with the shwa is the first letter of the lexeme, but not of the word unit. For example: בִּנְפֹל (Isa 30:25). - Satisfied #1 above but no longer satisfies no #2 because I can't figure out how to combine these two search queries. Problems: - Doesn't satisfy #2 above. - Doesn't satisfy #3 above. - Missing some examples like מַלְכֵי (Gen 17:16). - Related to #3, it's missing cases where the consonant with the shwa is the first letter of the lexeme, but not of the word unit. For example: בִּנְפֹל (Isa 30:25). After trying other dead ends, I eventually realized that the only way to adequately solve #3 above is to use literal search (now called "letters" in Accordance 12?). Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like I can use wildcards in a literal search? Please correct me if I'm wrong about this, I would love to be wrong. Really, any help would be very much appreciated!! I hope this makes clear what I'm trying to accomplish, but if not I can try to clarify further. ********* Edit: I've now figured out the following, which is the best I've gotten yet. Here's the breakdown of how I figure it works: Part 1: Finds any כ preceded by a shwa. Part 2: Removes any כ that has a dagesh in it, preceded by a shwa. Part 3: Removes any instances where the letter with the shwa is the first letter of the inflected form but does not have a dagesh. Part 4: Removes any instances where the letter with the shwa has a dagesh. This arrangement allows me to solve #1 and #2 above, while also finding words such as מַלְכֵי (Gen 17:16). However, I'm still left with the problem of #3 above—morphological boundaries. For example, בִּנְפֹל (Isa 30:25) still does not show up.

    Literal Search

    The Literal Search is amazing! Obviously. But two things would be a huge boost: 1) Commands, symbols etc. as with grammatical searches. Or at least a way to mix and match them (e.g. on lex next to a word search as a literal search). Maybe a symbol instead of switching between the two searches...? 'בראשׁית' in a literary search "ב ראשׁית" in a grammatical search Or maybe there other way around. 2) It appears that when I search for ש (shin/sin without any distinguishing mark), the Literal Search only finds a שׁ (Shin). It would be nice to search for the ambiguous Shin/Sin. Thanks!
