Thank you Robert. I am wondering if the syntax database would help me locate cases of asyndeton in tho OT. I know of three cases in Gen: 24:1, 27:2, 49:9 and 5 in Psalms: 14:1, 112:9, 60:3, 73:19, 106:13.
If I do a morphological search which is based on proximity, I get Gen 43:14 which clearly does not contain asyndeton but a construction similar to a conditional where one verb is in the protasis and the other is in the apodosis. On the other hand, Gen 27:2 is not caught in the search.
My problem is that I see that you tag the two verbs in these constructions as independent of each other (in separate clauses). If I put them in separate clauses in the Hebrew construct window, I am unable to match them in number gender and person nor am I able to put a WITHIN operator between clauses...
Is there no way to search asyndeta?
