How can one search for homonyms of either Greek or Hebrew words? Help please!

Accordance searches for homonyms by default, as it simply searches for a specific character string—unless we add a grammatical [morphological] or a syntactical tag. [We can tell Accordance to include capitalization, accent, and breathing marks by placing an equals sign (=) in front of the word.]

 

There is an easy way to see this in a Hebrew text. Select Search>Enter Lexical Forms, then type b-r-a in the entry field. You'll see three different roots, distinguished by (1), (2), (3). These are the three different Hebrew words that all use this same trilateral [sometimes called "triliteral"] root.

 

In a Greek text, select Search>Enter Inflected Forms, then type e-n. You'll see a number of different inflected forms differentiated only by their accents and breathing marks. Unless you include those in your search, Accordance will simply find every word spelled "en."
