Well, after almost ten years of hosting and producing Lighting the Lamp, I believe we have released the nerdiest episode ever. #172) Bracketed Words details the very different ways editors use brackets in Texts—and how to account for them in statistical analysis of searches. In essence, it explains the importance of the Search Condition "Bracketed Words." Enjoy! https://www.accordancebible.com/Bracketed-Words
Brian K. Mitchell posted a topic in Original LanguagesQuestion 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
