In Greek, some conjunctions can be used with different kinds of dependent Clauses. This is the case with ὅτι, that is found in Complement, Subject, Appositive, or Adjunct Clauses. An Adjunct Clause introduced by ὅτι is usually a causal Clause.
Thanks to the syntax add-on to GNT28-T, we can easily sort out the ὅτι Clauses according to their syntactical function.
We will need to prepare four different searches.
We will search first for Adjunct Clauses introduced by ὅτι. We will proceed as follows:
- Open a new Search Text window, choose GNT28-T as search text
- Click two times on the + to upper right of the Search Text, and choose to search for Words (not Verses) within every Chapter or Book (not Verse, etc)
- Open a new Greek Construct window (Command-2), that will be automatically linked with the Search Text
- In the Greek Construct window, drag the green item CLAUSE and drop it into the first column
- When prompted, choose Dependent clause only, then Adjunct, then click OK or press Return
- Drag the blue LEX item and drop it into the first column
- When prompted, go to ὅτι, then click OK or press Return
- Press Return or click on the Search button to perform the search
The results will look like this:
