Working with the count command in BHS, is it possible to construct the search such that Aramaic terms are excluded? (Without specifying a text set that excludes verses in Aramaic).

Thanks,
Mike

Let me ask this a different way since there haven't been any suggestions so far.

I know that all the Aramaic roots are marked with a -0, is it possible to search by root and then use the -0 to either find or exclude Aramaic? I've tried a number of combinations but without success.

(I'm working on a vocabulary project that will be much cleaner and easier to handle if I can segment my searches and deal with Hebrew and Aramaic separately instead of having them combined in the search results and then sorting them manually.)

Sorry we didn't reply before. Simply search for ‏*-*־0 to find all lemmas except Aramaic lemmas. However, since the roots do not have the suffix, adding the + to search for roots finds all the roots, since it excludes nothing.

Thanks so much! That was exactly what I needed.
