want to find NOUN Preposition SAME NOW
Posted 13 July 2012 - 04:04 PM
To help encourage people, I wanted to point out instances of repeated phrases in Romans such as: "May it never be" and "not only this, but"
I am now at Romans 13, and I noticed the phrase, tax to whom tax is due, custom to whom custom, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor
So, I want to set up a construct so that I can find all the instances of: NOUN -- preposition -- SAME NOUN
I have tried using a Greek construct, and I keep getting the following error message: There must be at least one agreement attribute entered.
I don't understand what I am doing wrong. Can I assume that Accordance can indeed, do such a search? Am I asking too much?
Again, my "gestalt" is that is a very basic Greek construct search -- so I apologise if I am missing something rather basic.
Thank you in advance for any help that can be rendered.

Surprisingly, it did NOT find your example from Romans 13. When I examined why, I found that the construction in those verses uses an article rather than a preposition between the two nouns. I simply deleted the PREPOSITION item from the middle column, replaced it with an ARTICLE item, and re-ran the search. This construct found all 4 instances you mentioned.
I suspect you got the error message because you had not checked anything in the dialog box when you dragged the AGREE item onto the Construct. If you don't tell Accordance how two items should agree, it doesn't know quite what to do.
Hope this helps.
