    finding untagged hits

    Is there a way to locate the untagged hits apart from by hand? I am dealing with needing to go through over 1300 hits to look for 5 runaway hits. 😕 I am hoping I don't need to do this by hand. Thanks, Kristin
  2. Hello, Is there a way to search "caps-sensitive"? Here's what I'd like to do. I want to search for all of the times in my ESV translation that the word "Father" appears, but only when the ESV capitalizes it. That will help me weed through the 979 times it appears referring to any "father" as opposed to specifically God the "Father." Thanks!

    Notes added to Research

    I would like to request for "Notes" to be included when doing research. Currently if I research a topic "My Tools" comes up, which is very helpful, but if it is in a Note it does not appear. I have a lot of important information in my notes, so having it included would be helpful, but it has become even more important as I have run into an issue with finding information in notes. If I know I wrote a note about something, I can only find that information if I remember which note I wrote it on. This is the main reason why I had originally only used one primary note, which I am now needing to transfer to several smaller notes. For more detail of this request please see this thread: Sincerely, Kristin
  4. I am not sure if I should be posting this in Tech Support or General, so hopefully this is correct. I remember that Acc 13 has the ability to search by highlight. For example, if I search for a highlight I would see all the verses with that highlight. Is that possible? If so, how is this done? My issue is that I have maxed out at 100 custom highlights and I really need another. I am thus needing to delete some highlights but will not be able to do that until carefully reviewing the verses which would be affected. If more than 100 highlights may be possible soon, please let me know and I will just hold off and wait for that to be possible. Thank you for any help anyone is able to provide. Sincerely, Kristin

    Lots of bugs in Accordance 13

    I just downloaded Accordance 13. There seem to be lots of bugs. First, when trying to find hapax legomena, the search does not pick up the first hapax legomena in Matthew 1:1, namely the word βίβλος. This happens when I do all ranges except Matthew itself. Second, I cannot get triple click to work. My preferences are set correctly. Third, live click does not work. Also, trying to find hapax legomena gives wrong information for all ranges.
  6. Hello, I am wondering if it is possible to do searches of Biblical texts, in both English, Greek and Hebrew at the same time. If it is possible, how would one do it, and what resources would be needed? For example, I would like to be able to search for every b-preposition in the Hebrew text. Then, I would like to bring up all those verses in essentially literal English texts (NASB, ESV, KJV, YLT). Then, I would like to find every occurrence where ALL of the English versions translate the word "among" or "amongst" due to the preposition. So if only one version translates "among", I don't want to know about it. I only care if all of my selected versions translate it a similar way. As an added benefit, it would be good if I could choose not to require all the versions to translate b-prep as "among" - in this case, even if only one version uses the word "among" for the Hebrew b-prep, I would still want that verse to come up in my search. Another example in the Newer Testament is as follows. I want to find every Greek Present Imperative in a Greek text. I then want to bring up all these verses in select essentially literal translations, e.g. NASB, ESV, KJV, YLT. I then want to search through all those verses, and see whether the word "let" has been translated into those English texts with the verb that is a present imperative. What would also be helpful is, as before, only bringing up results where there is an intersection in what the English texts do.. So for instance, a verse will only come up as a search result if all the English texts translated the word "let"; if one of them didn't then the verse won't come up. (E.g. Phil 4:6 - "... let your requests be made known... (NASB)", the word "let" translated and the verb "to make known" in Greek is a present imperative here - so I would want this to come up in a search because the word "let" is used in the same in the KJV, ESV, and YLT). Is this possible? I have considered trying to do simultaneous construct searches but this has not worked for me. **Side note - is it possible to export a list of verses that result from a search? Thanks in advance, Ethan
  7. Here is a very basic question but I have not been able to figure it out. I have two panes open. One with Hebrew and another with English Bible. How do I go from a present verse, say Zechariah 1:3 and move to Jeremiah 24:7, for instance? Thanks!
  8. Hi, two questions. 1. How do I set up a search for words that begin with וַיּ ? 2. How do I indicate blank letters in searches, where the letters can be any letters? Many thanks!
  9. Prompted by a fb post on Nerdy Language Majors this morning, I wondered if I could use Accordance to search for the Aramaic words in the Bible. Yep. Here's my search in NA28-T: the morphological search ( [ANY Aram] finds 15 verses with 22 words. It appears that only four of those words are tagged accented: ῥακά, ὡσαννὰ, and the phrase μαράνα θά.
  10. I believe this may already be in the works for a new release, but just to be sure: please add an option to search *all / any* content within a document, instead of requiring the user to pick a limited filter (such as "English content," "Titles," etc.) I would greatly appreciate the ability to do one simple search to find *all* occurrences of a word throughout the document. (I can't even comprehend why a universal search isn't available; and the Support Team ensured me already that I'm not ignorant of an existing way to do this). Thanks so much.
  11. I want to get all the occurences of a specific number in the Bible. If I search "seven" in english or in hebrew, I'll get result like 720, 107, etc. To avoid this, I could use <NOT> with the tens and the hundreds. However, this is too much as it deletes the results in a list (10 horses, 7 cows, etc.) Is there an (easy) way to search specific numbers?
  12. Hi! I am working on my master thesis and use Accordance swiftly. I have a lot of journals but the amount is kind a doubled edged. When I use the search " Metaphor <and> *stone* " I get several hundreds hits and it is exhausting to go through it all! The problem is that the same articles tends to show up many times just showing a sentence or a paragraph. It would have been super nice if there was a way to just show the titles, and maybe the abstract if there was one. Maybe Im not using the program intelligently. I dont know. Cheers.
  13. I am trying to do a search for all Greek words in the NT with the ending "ους" for the manuscript form that are also in the genitive singular. I used this search "*ους"@ [NOUN -genitive] which did returned all results including accusative. So it didn't filter the genitive. As an aside when I try look at the analysis, the app crashes.

    DSSB Variants searching difficulty

    Hi Everyone, This is probably a stupid question. I am writing a paper on the shape of the text of Amos as attested at Qumran, and I'm having difficulty with the DSSB Variants module. I can search for variants by mss number with no problem, but for some reason, the module will not let me search via scripture reference, even when I know that such a reference and variant is listed in the module. (See an example in the attached screenshot). I feel like I am just overlooking something rather elementary. But if anyone has any insight, I would appreciate it. Thanks! David
  15. hey everybody, long time user, first time poster. so, i had the thought for a search the other day. say i wanted to find "good book," but other "_____ books," too: [adjective] book can i do this in an english text? thanks a bunch, bookie
  16. At present when I search for a phrase, I get stopped at a max of 15 lex including suf. I'd like to request that there be no limit on the search. While it may so unnecessary because with so many lex in that sequence it will probably only return the one verse, which is right there. But Accordance can do so much more than just search for a phrase. Once a phrase is found, you have HITS and those HITS become magic to be dropped in another text etc. Unleash the searches!! - Liam Neeson (but not) Thanks! PS - Still would like to see HITS have the option for roots. This would be double magic.
  17. So I'm having some trouble searching and making productive use of the the Bracketed Words search option. The three options currently are: (1) Included, (2) Ignored, and (3) Exclusive. The thing is, unless I'm missing something, this doesn't allow for the user to search the text for a phrase according to the Qere. For example, a well known correction my the Masoretes is in 2 Kgs 18:27 || Isa 36:12, where commander says (according to the Ketiv) "Was it only to your master and you that my master sent me to say these things, and not to the people sitting on the wall—who, like you, will have to eat their own dung (חראיהם) and drink their own urine (שיניהם)?" But the Qere euphemistically uses filth (צואתם) and water of the feet (מימי רגליהם). If I search for ולשתות את שיניהם I get the hit because it is in the Ketiv. But if I search for ולשתות את מימי רגליהם I don't get the hit because it is the Qere. I have tried all three options for the Bracketed Words and none of them seem to allow for searching a phrase according to the Qere. If this is a missing option, I think its an important one to address. When brackets are used in mss to indicate lacunae, that's one thing and this option works fine. But in the BHS text when it indicates variant readings, its important to have the option to search in either reading. Thanks!
  18. In Accordance, there are creative ways to find word play in Hebrew. For example, using the Wild Card features in a construct search, Gen 6:8 has some nice word play on Noah's name: ונח מצא חן בעיני יהוה. Another example of this occurs in the Judah and Tamar narrative (Gen 38:7): ‏ויהי ער בכור יהודה רע בעיני יהוה וימתהו יהוה. Right now I do this because I know the letters/root I'm looking for. In the form of a construct search it looks like this: two lex using wild cards (?(רעע)?(רעע)) WITHIN 10 words that do not agree in root. So how can I search for two lex used in this kind of word play that share the same letters, but not the same root, when I don't know the root beforehand? Is there a way to reference the root/lex of another word and its characters in a construct search? Something akin to ???(=2) but instead of referencing the second character within that particular lex, I reference another root/lex and its characters. Or is there a way to specify the characters within my use of the wild cards by using the hits from a search: ?([HITS])?([HITS])?([HITS]). Thanks!

    Hapax Search -properName

    Can somebody please explain to me what is happening here? [COUNT 1] <AND> [RANGE Isaiah] returns 294 hits. [COUNT 1]@[NOUN properName] <AND> [RANGE Isaiah] returns 18 hits. [COUNT 1]@[NOUN -properName] <AND> [RANGE Isaiah] returns 200 hits. If I understand correctly, the first search query should be searching for every lemma that occurs once in the Hebrew Bible and returning those that are in Isaiah. The second is doing the same but only searching for proper names that occur once. The third is the same as the first except that it searches for every lemma that occurs once and is not a proper name. I'm no mathematician, but I'm pretty confident that 294 minus 18 does not equal 200. Am I interpreting something wrong?

    Making the most of MT-LXX

    The more I use MT-LXX, the more I like it; it provides a lightning-fast way to glean most of the information I could gather by rummaging through Hatch-Redpath for an hour or so. I would love to hear what others are doing with it. As fast as it is, there must (or should!) be quicker and easier ways to do what I'm doing with it. Here's an example from my work this morning to illustrate. I'm working in the Sinaiticus Psalter (which is a separate issue; it would be awesome if we could get a tagged text covering the whole of Sinaiticus and not just NT…) and wondered to what extent μακαριος overlaps with אשׁרי in wider LXX usage. Enter MT-LXX. Here's what I found and typed up in my user notes: Now, finding this information was, as I said, lightning fast. But getting it into my user notes was surprisingly laborious for Accordance. The major hurdle was the verse references. Apparently I cannot "Copy As: References" from a Reference Tool. Neither could I open a text in parallel with a reference tool (the way you can open a reference tool in parallel with a text) and copy as references from the text. For me, this meant I had to copy all, then strip out the Greek, Hebrew, paragraph breaks, etc. in order to have just the verse references for my notes. Surely there is a faster/better way? But, even if not, this is much faster than working with paper. And, incidentally, I did discover that I can use find/replace in the user notes Edit window by hitting command-f, which saved a lot of time. So, two questions for those of you who have been using MT-LXX longer and/or more extensively than I have so far: Is there a way to do this kind of collating of results in a quicker, easier fashion? And, what other kinds of things do you find the tool useful for? Also, for Abram K-J and others, here is a link to my saved workspace for using MT-LXX, with BHS-W4 changed over to HMT-W4. http://goo.gl/ggdm1 Aha! Looks like I can also attach it as a .zip, so here it is. Thanks in advance! Tony MTLXX.zip

    Searching Biblical Characters

    Recently Logos came out with a feature where the user may search a specific biblical character. The results this search compiles includes references, pronouns, and other titles. For example, If I do I search for "Mary the mother of Jesus" then results such as "his mother" or "born of a woman" or "her" or "them" when in reference to Mary. This would help when doing research on a specific character. Thanks for all your work!

    Search Graphics in iOS

    One of my favorite features in Accordance is the graphic display charts I can access after searching. Could we have these same charts/graphics (pie charts/hit graphs) available for searching on the iOS?

    Searching All Participles

    Is there a way to search all participles in my Greek tests?
  24. Hi I'm wanting to search all of my commentaries for a greek word where it's shown near a verse reference (for example pistis where near Gal 5:22). Can anyone show me how I would accomplish this? thanks Simon
  25. Is it possible to use the searchbar to find all verses containing at least to of something (fx containing at least to infinitives) this construct gets things done: But can I do something like this [COUNT >1]@[VERB infinitive] I know count dosn't work this way - but you get the point.
