Can somebody please explain to me what is happening here?

 

[COUNT 1] <AND> [RANGE Isaiah] 

returns 294 hits. 

 

[COUNT 1]@[NOUN properName] <AND> [RANGE Isaiah]

returns 18 hits.

 

[COUNT 1]@[NOUN -properName] <AND> [RANGE Isaiah]

returns 200 hits.

 

 

If I understand correctly, the first search query should be searching for every lemma that occurs once in the Hebrew Bible and returning those that are in Isaiah. The second is doing the same but only searching for proper names that occur once. The third is the same as the first except that it searches for every lemma that occurs once and is not a proper name.

 

I'm no mathematician, but I'm pretty confident that 294 minus 18 does not equal 200.

 

Am I interpreting something wrong?

Your 218 hits are all of the [COUNT 1]@[NOUN].  The other 76 hits are hapax that are not nouns.

Ah, I see, thank you Joel. It seems so obvious now. So [count 1]‏ @-‎[noun proper]‎<and>‎[range isaiah]‏ is the way to do this then.
