Anyone using syntactical searches in Anderson-Forbes?

Just a brief question to determine if anyone is actually using successfully  the AF database in real world studies? I have been looking for some practical illustrations.

Yes, please. This would be very helpful!

I'm not using it at the moment for searching / word studies.

 

I find the Holmstedt Syntax more reliable, and less confusing to read the syntax trees. I think the Andersen Forbes database is too difficult to use without proper documentation. I still read it often, though I don't often use it for searching.

 

The two videos on the database is good, but I think we might need more. The Accordance syntax searching bugs also throw a spanner in the works, because I can't properly learn to use the functions if they don't work in the first place.

I’m familiar with A-F when I used it in Logos 3 years ago. I need to look at the Accordance version and see if the visualization is similar. If I can brush up on it, I’ll see about some training videos, or maybe even we do some type of Hebrew Syntax Webinar in the future once the syntax searching bugs are resolved in 14.

I used it years ago on Logos also but find it daunting on Accordance

That would be excellent thank you so much!
