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
I recently performed some searches using the <not> command using Accordance 10.4.5 on Mac 10.11.6. I received results that seemed anomalous, so I simplified to see whether I was doing something wrong. The simplified search also resulted in anomalies. Can someone explain these results--is it operator error or something else? Search 1: "ἀγαπ*" returns 278 hits Search 2: "ἀγαπη" returns 64 hits Search 3: "ἀγαπ*" <not> "ἀγαπη" returns 205 hits (expected 214 hits) Drilling down into the results, I noticed that Search 3 omitted the following, which were in Search 1 hits: Ἀγαπητοί from 1 John 4:7 ἀγαπᾷ and ἀγαπᾶτε from 1 John 2:15 ἀγαπῶμεν from 1 John 4:7 and 12 ἀγαπῶν from 1 John 4:7 and 8 ἁγάπην from 1 Peter 4:8 and 1 John 4:16
