I was looking at the double preposition מן (min) phrase in Lev 1:2 and wanted to see similar occurrences.

 

I did a construct search (RTL of cource) LEX min + NOT PARTICLE conjunction + LEX min (all WITHIN 5 words) because I want to see other instances of back-to-back min phrases without a vav or something else in between. But this search yielded Gen 2:23 which has a vav in between the min phrases. So then I changed the negated (NOT) portion of the search to LEX vav (both of them listed in the drop down menu), but I still get Gen 2:23 as the first verse in the search result.

 

If I narrow the WITHIN range to 3 words, I get different results, but the first example (Gen 6:14) still has a vav in between the min phrases. 

 

What am I doing wrong?

I just re-tried the searches on the HMT instead of the BHS with the same results.

 

Also, I realize this is a three-part list in Lev 1:2 where only the last item in the list takes vav, but shouldn't I still be able to search for exclusions of vav in other cases?

This is the ideal time to use the INTER command along with the WITHIN. The negative column is problematic, but a negative INTER states clearly that the defined item must not appear anywhere between the two columns.

Thank you. That did the trick. Where can I get a refresher on INTER?

The Accordance Help has a great article on it.  Either search for 'INTER' or try navigating to it at this location:

 

You are here: Biblical Research and Analyses > Work with Grammatically Tagged Text > Greek and Hebrew Constructs > The INTER Connecting Item
