I did a search on the hebrew מַלְכוּת, malkut and came back with 91 occurrences.  But I would like to do a search on the aramaic equivalent.  I would like to know the aramaic equivalent (malku ?) and how to search it on HMT-W4.  Thank you and God bless!

If I want to reference the occurrences of the Aramaic malkutha as equivalent to the Hebrew malkut (91x), should I use the lemma malku (57x)?

Hi Emanuel, generally the aramaic root is marked with a ~0 (see red box here), when the lemma is typed up to the coph you can see the aramaic root in the drop down menu (green arrow).

then when you select the ~0 root you know you have the aramaic in the results

Thank you so much Ken for that info.  That will help me out.  I did not know that until now.

Additionally, if you want to exclude Hebrew results from your searches almost completely, make a custom Range with the following definitions:

Gen. 31,47;Jer. 10,11;Dan 2,4-7,28;Ezra 4,8-6,18;Ezra 7,12-26

 

Gen 31,47 is mostly in Hebrew but has a single Aramaic word in it. The first four words in Dan 2,4 are in Hebrew, but the rest is in Aramaic. The remaining definitions are in Aramaic only.

 

This is particularly useful for grammatical searches of a more general nature - if you, for instance, want to figure out how many Aramaic nouns there are in total in the Old Testament. Just search for [NOUN] after defining the range and you're done. Or almost, really. You'd have to subtract the few Hebrew results in Gen 31,47 and Dan 2,4, which in this case would be 2311 hits minus the Hebrew 6 nouns giving 2305 Aramaic nouns.

 

Conversely, if you want to make similar searches in Hebrew where you'd want to leave the Aramaic out, you need a range with the following definitions:

 

Gen-Jer. 10,10;Jer. 10,12-Dan. 2,4;Dan. 8,1-Ezra. 4,7;Ezra. 6,19-Ezra 7,11;Ezra 7,27-2Chr

 

The two verses, Gen 31,47 and Dan 2,4, that have both Hebrew and Aramaic in them must be dealt with manually here as well. Oh, and if you aren't using European notations, you may have to switch all the commas out with colons to make the ranges work.

 

With kind regards

Gen 31,47 . . . has a single Aramaic word in it

 

Hi Peter,

 

Some might be confused by your analysis of יְגַ֖ר שָׂהֲדוּתָ֑א . Even Rosenthal analyzes "two words translating a Hebrew toponym into Aramaic" (A Grammar of Biblical Aramaic, I.1.). Perhaps you could clarify for them.

 

Regards,

 

Michel

It is indeed two word and should be understood as such - As a toponym both words make up a single "unit", of course, but I should none the less have written "two words" instead of one. Thank you for pointing it out, Michel! :)

 

With kind regards
