    lexeme vs construct

    I am kind of confused. I was searching for all hits of the lexeme אוֹר regardless of key and whatever and searching the lexeme I get 122 hits. However, if I do a construct looking for the lexeme I get 176 hits?? I see the lexeme search scrubbed out the hit of Ur in Gen 11:31, so it is getting out what it perceives as different meanings, but it is still a lexeme. So I guess I don't understand what a lexeme search is vs a construct search. Thanks, Kristin
  2. I apologize for the ignorant question, but why can't a proper name in Hebrew ever be in construct? I feel like grammatically it should be. For example, "King OF Israel" King is in construct. "David OF Jerusalem" David should be in construct, but it is not since it is just a "proper name" and I don't understand. I would appreciate any clarity anyone is able to provide. Kristin

    Greek construct set up

    Hi everyone, I need some help with a Greek construct. In Greek names obviously usually have articles, but not always. Using Peter as an example, in Mt 26:58 there is an article before his name, even though δὲ is squished between them, while there is not an article before his name in Mt 16:16. I am trying to find all examples like Mt 16:16 for a few names. I have figured out I need to do this with a Greek construct, but I don't know how to set it up as I don't care which case it is, and also, the article is sometimes not immediately before the name in question. Thank you for any help anyone is able to provide. Sincerely, Kristin

    #162 Greek Grammars & Construct Searches

    Podcast #162 is in response to a viewer’s request. (See the Podcasts forum thread, Ideas, I need Ideas!) https://www.accordancebible.com/forums/topic/21989-ideas-i-need-ideas/ It shows how to build a Construct search based on a description of a particular construction in a Greek grammar. In this case, Dr. J shows how to find each of Wallace’s four classes of conditional sentences. Ready for a challenge? The Greek Grammar Searches Workspace features in the podcast is attached for your convenience. Enjoy! Greek Grammar Searches.accord.zip Note: Even if you do not own all the resources included in the workspace, it may still open for you in Accordance 11 and up, but will crash if the Syntax is not installed.
  5. The standard Hebrew reference grammars say that two similar-sense (but non-cognate) nouns in a construct chain can function like a superlative/elative (e.g., GKC §133i; Joüon §141n; IBHS §14.5b). I'd like to search for examples of this beyond what are listed in the reference grammar, but it's (practically) impossible to look through all the construct chains that occur in the Hebrew Bible and identify ones formed from two similar-sense nouns. To search for this type of construct I thought of using the Andersen-Forbes Morphology & Syntax Database: because this database tags many words with a semantics category, in theory you could search for two nouns in construct that agree with each other on their Semantics tag. However, it doesn't appear that you can specify agreement for the Semantics tag. Am I missing something, or is this an option that should be added to the AGREE box in Accordance? If it's not currently available, does anyone have any suggestions on how to go about this search?
  6. I am trying to use the contruct search to list the nominal infinitive absolutes in Genesis. It seems I should be able to figure this out...but it's not working. Any hints?
  7. Today's webinar was great. More webinars please. Please cover Constructs in great detail and the pros and cons of booleans vs. constructs. I've read http://accordancefiles2.com/helpfiles/OSX12/content/topics/06_braa/undrstnd_constrct_vs_srch.htm but still am slow at getting it. Best, Dan

    Hebrew Construct Panel

    I am quite thrilled to begin working with Accordance's Hebrew Construct panel. Thanks to all who have helped me thus far. My first question is, how do I remove an item. I discovered that I add an item by dragging it. But I am not sure how to delete an item, when I want to modify my construct panel. Many thanks!

    Greek Construct Search

    Hello, I'm a fairly new Accordance user (been using Logos for 20+ years). I was messing around with the Greek Construct search a little bit. I went to Accordance Bible Training at SWBTS in Fort Worth a little over a week ago, and Construct searches seemed to work for me there. Now I'm crashing Accordance every time I try to run this search. I'm wanting to find neuter plural subjects with singular verbs. Here is a picture of my search: http://davidfish.info/NeuterPlural%20SubjectSingular%20Verb.jpg Everytime I click search, Accordance crashes. Can anyone help me? I've checked for both app updates and content updates.
  10. Hi I’m trying to search for the number of words in a direct speech sentence, but whatever I tried somehow Accordance does not recognize and does not count certain words in a direct speech sentence (see screenshot). I don't know if that happened only after the 11.2 update or before, because I only tried doing it after the update was installed. Is it a bug and can it be fixed with the next update? Thanks, Daniel
  11. Hi all, My first post, but hoping you can help. I believe I found a bug in the Greek Construct search. I’m trying to find the following: -A second-person plural imperative followed by a nominative plural participle. The results should include Colossians 2:6-7. I’ve attached a screenshot of my construct. In the left column is my search results, on the right is Colossians 2:6-8 for reference. ————— As a further explanation, I’m confused because of the following: When I search for: Verb: second plural imperative -Results include: Col. 2:6 - περιπατεῖτε When I search for: Verb: participle plural nominative -Results include: Col. 2:7 - ἐρριζωμένοι But, when I search for these within 3 words in the construct it does not include Col 2:6-7. Am I doing something wrong in this search? ConstructSearchBug.tiff
  12. When I open a new construct window for a search, it has no columns in it. Am I doing something wrong?

    Greek construct root search crash

    -Start Accordance -Open Greek text -New Greek construct search -Add root, but don't specify it -Hit enter = crash Can anyone confirm this crash? Also, when selecting a noun with certain specification (see attached) it occasionally happens that I want to remove the tag. When I select the blank option and press enter the noun just remains specified (genitive in this case). I know that I can remove the specification manually in the field, but I would expect that selecting a blank option should result in removing the tag.
  14. Acc 10.2.1 Accordance crashes when trying to set up a Hebrew construct search for two verbs within a range. See attached. It also crashes for other types (lemma's etc). Greek construct for chapter range is working fine. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? How can I set up the search as shown in the picture in the meantime? I want to find relations between aspects of verbs within larger parts of texts, so not restricted to separate verses. Thanks, Steven
  15. Hello, I'd like to find all verses where there are any differences between the GNT28-T and GNT-T texts. Any idea how to make such a construct? I tried a few constructs but my task is too simple to make a construct that really works. Perhaps someone can make it and post a screenshot? Thanks in advance!
  16. I get inconsistent results from the use of NOT in the Hebrew construct window, mostly including results that have the element marked by NOT. For example, searching the Qal of ידע followed by את followed by אשׁר followed by [verb]. I have WITHIN 3 words between the first 2 columns and WITHIN 4 words between the 2nd and 4th columns. I run the search with and without NOT on the 3rd column with אשׁר. But some verses show up in both searches. The only difference is that when using NOT the אשׁר does not light up in the results, while it does when the search is done without the NOT. Clearly the program sees it, but why doesn't it screen these results out? The attached screen shots show Gen 9:24 in both results. Perhaps I'm setting it up wrong, but have often had this sort of thing. Another example searches the Qal of ידע followed by כי followed by [verb] WITHIN 4 (from 1st to 3rd column). Gen 8:11 and 15:8 (etc.) should not show up. Thanks for any help.
  17. I was searching for יוֹם in the HMT-W4 via the construct search window. My criteria was: noun, common, plural, masculine. I further required that they agree in lexical form and number. But since I was getting hits that included the absolute, which I didn't want, I later selected "NOT" absolute in the noun drop down criteria. Oddly, I still received results with the plural absolute יָמִ֔ים in Leviticus 8:33 and elsewhere. I thought this hit should have been excluded based on the "NOT" absolute selection? Have I set up the criteria incorrectly or missed something?
