@Mark Allison Please acquire the SEMANTIC DICTIONARY OF BIBLICAL HEBREW https://translation.bible/tools-resources/semantic-dictionary-of-biblical-hebrew/ for the OT. So Accordance has a Semantic Dictionary for the NT and the OT. And then a good implementation for Accordance 14 to make the most out of it is needed too. This would be a huge advantage. This is a part Accordance lacks. There is a English version and for our friends in Brazilian and Portugal a Portuguese version. Please acquire both. Fabian
bjnoonan posted a topic in Hebrew Syntax GuidesThe 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?
