I'm trying to run some searches for a specific verb (or verb type; in this case III-ה) with pronominal suffixes.
I can search for the verb type easily:
[verb] @??ה+

But if I add <AND> [suffix], so that my search looks like this:
[verb] @??ה+ <AND> [suffix]

 

I get *VERSES* that contain both III-he verbs and pronominal suffixes (usually on other words), which is *NOT* what I'm trying to find.

Any help?

Thanks!

Omit the <AND> and you will find the word followed by the suffix.

Thank you!  I also had to move the command [suffix] to the head of the command, or I got suffixes followed by the verb.  So my search now looks like this: 

[suffix] [ verb] @h??+ 

 


Let me try that again.

My command looks like this:

[suffix] [verb] @ה??+

On an unrelated note, when I type a search, my font runs r-t-l when I am not in brackets and puts everything in a Hebrew font.  I find this maddening when a) I accidentally delete a bracket and a thread of letters become unintelligible, or B) I need to put a space somewhere and I can't because the r-t-l function wants to put it on the wrong side of a tag.  Is there a better way for me to be doing things?

Thanks!

The mixed directions are hard to edit. Sometimes it's easier to tab to select the entire entry and just start over. Also remember that if you already see an example in the text, you can select it and choose various search options from the right-click menu.

Also, if you add your grammatical options in the Search (or right-click) menu -> Enter Tag, it will most definitely keep the mixed direction text managed properly.
