I apologize in advance if this has already been asked, I searched the forums but wasn't able to find the answer.
What I am attempting to do is simply find all instances when the string יהם appears in the Hebrew Bible. I'm working with DSS fragments and often need to find all instances in which a part of a word (as it shows up in the DSS) is attested. In this specific case, I know יהם is the end of the word, so I figured it would be as simple as searching יהם* but special search characters automatically switch my search to a grammatical search. A grammatical search means I have to know where the word should be split. Certainly I can guess that הם is a pronominal suffix and treat it that way, but I don't know that for sure and would much rather search for the entire string as a whole. Is there a different character that serves as a wild card in literal search? Or is there any other way of performing this type of search?
I certainly appreciate the unimaginable amount of work that goes into tagging texts for Accordance, but I sometimes wish there was the option of simply searching a string throughout the entire text without worrying about lemmas, separate words, etc. This applies not only to biblical texts, but also commentaries, grammars, etc. Is there no way to simply treat a tool as say a PDF, and do a full search without deciding if I'm looking for a reference, title, content, section, scripture, etc.?
