how to search nouns without articles preceding

Please forgive if the answer is obvious, but I'm interested in searching Greek texts for possible Latin influences (or direct translation from Latin). One method I doubt is promising, but I'm curious to try it anyway, is to see how often Josephus drops definite articles where we would expect them in Greek. Experience says that he does this occasionally, but I'd like to see whether there are patterns. I know how to search nouns with articles of various kinds, but not without them. I tried selecting the 'not' feature on each kind of article, but that didn't produce plausible results. Many thanks in advance.

I don't know if you've tried playing around with a graphical construct search, but the negating item tends to work much better than using the <NOT> command from the Search Entry box. That being said, it's always harder to find something that isn't there than something that is.
