How to Create Hebrew Verb lists which include forms with pronominal suffixes AND/OR Waw-Consecutive?
sonshine71 posted a topic in Original LanguagesHi, Aas the title describes, I am wanting to generate a list of Hebrew verbs which INCLUDE the pronominal suffixe and waw-consecutive. I want this list to be restricted only to the range of Jonah 1-4 and include full parsing (including suffix). How is this done? I have learned how to create a basic Hebrew verb list with parsing, etc. but noted that the suffix and waw-consec are all removed. suggestions (or better: command line examples)? Thanks, Jason
I was wondering how Accordance parses imperfect waw-consecutive forms - as imperfects? as apocapated? as jussives? I've seen all three in instant details. For example: וַיַּרְא in Gen 1:31 parsed in Accordance as "Qal wawConsec 3 masc sing apoc” and in the same verse וַיְהִ is also parsed as "Qal wawConsec 3 masc sing apoc” By “apocapated” does Accordance mean jussive, or something else? (I know apocapated refers to a shortened form – my students and I were just debating whether or not Accordance is implying it’s a shortened form of the imperfect as distinct from the jussive because the instant details doesn’t say “jussive” although” Jussive” is used by Accordance elsewhere וַיַּעַשׂ in Gen 1:7 "Qal wawConsec 3 masc sing apoc" and in Gen 2:22 וַיִּבֶן Qal wawConsec 3 masc sing apoc. This led me to assume that Accordance doesn't use the term "jussive" for these forms. But then I found this in Ruth 1:8: [יַעֲשֶׂה [יַעַשׂ in which both are listed as "Qal Impf 3 masc sing jussiveB" (the one on the right with the final he is not a jussive). So my question is, in the Hebrew verb parsing (instant details), what does "apocapated" refer to - a shortened impf that is not a jussive, or does apocapated refer to the jussive (in Accordance-ease)? And if Accordance uses the term "jussive", why not for verbs that are actually jussives? and why use both "Impf" and "jussive" for a jussive in Ruth 1:8? Thanks for the clarification!

I tried to search "waw consecutive perfect" (whatever you may call it) but I found out that option is not available though I have "was consecutive" option that is only for waw consecutive prefix conjugation. I hope I am missing something. If I want to search waw consecutive perfect form of a certain verb or that grammatical entity in general, do I have to do the construct search or put a complicating set of commands?
