Question

How do I Ignore bracketed words/phrases in a Hebrew construct search?

(and vice versa: How can I search on the qere (and/or) bracketed words/phrases and ignore the ketiv?)

 

 

Description:

This query attempts to find every verse in the Hebrew Bible where there is an occurrence of two atnach accents.

 

Results:

Five verses namely:

(1) Gen. 35:22

(2) Ex. 20:2

(3) Ex. 20:5

(4) 2 Kings. 23:10 (false hit: picks up the bracketed [qere] as well as the ketiv)

(5) 1 Chr. 10:1 ( the only verse in the early BHS printings and the Westminster morphology were two consecutive/repetitive atnach appear. The Leningrad Codex has an atnach followed by a mhuppak accent mark).

 

It is easy to read through and eliminate hits I believe to be false or irrelevant. However, I am curious if there is a way to configure the construct search engine so that it automatically ignores words/phrases in brackets?

Any help, hints, or constructive advice (pun intended) would be greatly appreciated,

Try to make a normal search with the Hebrew text, where you exclude the words in brackets. And then open the construct search and make your search.

ATTENTION: My bug reports are all with the GERMAN INTERFACE and with the EUROPEAN NOTATION! It can be the English interface has no bug, which I describe.

Fabian is correct, the setting for the bracketed words option will apply to the Construct search which is linked to that tab.

Thank you (plural) Fabian and Helen so much both for answering my question. 

 

Works like a charm, I did not even have to execute a search in the 'search entry area' of the main search tab. I just set the linked tab in the 'search entry area' to ignore bracketed words/phrases.

I knew the windows were linked, but it had not dawned on me that the 'search parameters/Conditions' of the search entry area were linked to query in the construct search window. I am a little slow. But, this is great!

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                         Thank you both!
