bjnoonan Posted May 2, 2022 Share Posted May 2, 2022 I am trying to search for occurrences of a Hebrew construct chain translated as a possessive by English translations like the NIV. I thought I could do this using the TEXT command, inputting *'s for the English text to search for. The problem is, Accordance thinks that the apostrophe is marking a quotation for a search, and I receive the following error: "A quotation character is missing. Each quotation character must be followed by a corresponding quotation character to indicate that inflected forms are intended." I also tried putting a period before the apostrophe, because you can search for an independent character like apostrophe by placing a period before it. However, this doesn't work either because Accordance seems to take anything following an apostrophe, even if the apostrophe is preceded by a period, as a quotation. Thus, I receive the same error. So, here's my question: Is there a way to search for an apostrophe within a word? If not, does anyone have any suggestions on how I can accomplish my search objective in a different way? Thanks in advance for your time. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
