I downloaded the MTLXX workspace. Typed in lvm looked up the concordance and it says  '1_lDvDm proverb  (32)'.

​But when I look msl up in an other workspace it says 1_lDvDm proverb  (39)

When I count msl in my MTLXX workspace I see 39 and not 32 places where msl is used. 
So 39 places are shown but Accordance say it is 32. 
Is this a technical error or am I missing something?

I think I know what the problem is. When you seach for "משׁל" in quotation marks (either in the MTLXX workspace or any other workspace), it will only search for this specific combination of consonants of which there are 32 for the noun משׁל - the thing is that it does not count the construct or absolute plural forms משׁלי and משׁלים of which there are 7 in total (in spite of these being present in the Concordance list), thus bringing the total up to 39.


With kind regards

That's where the MERGE command comes in, to pull all the hits from the tagged text into the MT-LXX Parallel. Please look it up in the Help.
