just playing around with the search by [KEY tansliteration]


I initially tried the search as in the release notes


[KEY agape]


That returned 106 words in ESVS.


The transliteration I have used for years for η is h (or H) and trying that returns 110 results


The Accordance transliteration is agapē, so I can see how the first one works


but the results of the [KEY agaph] search returns agapao (ἀγαπάω)


Now, the first one makes sense, and while I may use a different translit system personally, I can see why we should use the Accordance one.


But, why does agaph find the agapao keys? The logic doesn't make sense to me.

It appears to be ignoring the 'h'. If you enter [KEY agap] you get 110 verses and 143 hits.


However if you put 'agap' followed by nearly any other letter you get 110 verses!


As you say Ken it does not appear to make complete sense.


It is quite fun because if you put a random English word into the Key search it finds something (I tried 'green' and 'munch').


Try 'Orlando' that appears to be quite amusing.
