I'm doing word study on the word root "קוה"
a search on the root returns all the occurrences in the OT, which is quite nice.
It also lists all the derived forms.
But I don't all the list. I just want to search for the words that are associated with the meaning "to hope."
Therefore I searched for קוה־1+
Interestingly, Acc. seems to ignore the "־1" and return the same result.
The only way I can do is to search for the following words:
(קוה־1, =תִּקְוָה־2, =מִקְוֶה־1=)
That means that I have do launch the search for the root first, and get the wanted result.
And then search for (=קוה־1, =תִּקְוָה־2, =מִקְוֶה־1) to get the wanted verse list.
Is there an easier way to do the searching?
Another interesting thing concerning this particular root: since the homonym-קוה־1 is related to "hope"
why does תִּקְוָה־1 mean "cord", but תִּקְוָה־2 means "hope"? (This is the a question of coding system rather than of Acc tech.)
Thank you very much!
