Easier searching for disjunctive clauses (Hebrew)

I was attempting to highlight the disjunctive clauses in Obadiah, but was finding it a bit of a challenge finding the non wawConsecutives. In particular I wanted to find all waw + noun constructions.

 

I'm still learning the searching syntax for Accordance, but eventually was able to use the following to do this:

[noun]‎<WITHIN 1 Words>‎<PRECEDED BY>‏ =וְ

 

(The above is probably left to right instead of right to left).

 

So, a couple of questions:

1) is there an easier syntax for the above search?

2) if not, would it be possible in future to do something like this instead?

 

"[noun]וְ="

This search seems to work for me:

 

"[noun]ו"

(typing quote-w-[noun]-quote)
 
Is this what you are looking for?

When I type quote, waw, [noun], quote Accordance inserts a space between [noun] and the final quote.

 

When I remove that space and hit enter, accordance complains: "The relationship between words is ambiguous. If a phrase is meant, then a space should appear between words.

Sorry, I intended there to be a space.  The space is actually a good thing - Accordance considers the prefix a separate 'word' from the main lemma, so you are actually looking for it as a phrase.

Ah, okay. Not intuitive, but makes some sense.

I would have thought entering a space within quotes, you see, implies you're also looking for something separated by a space.

 

I understand they're considered separate words, but they're not displayed as such.

 

Thanks!
