I would like to look at case marking patterns with נתן 'to give'. I made the following syntax search to look for the pattern [ [ NTN ] [ L+complement ] [ complement ] ]:

Which gave the following results:

As you can see, there were 425 words in 315 verses that hit, but I would like to figure out quickly how many times the pattern as a group occurred. Hypothetically I could do this by singling out how many times the verb נתן itself was a hit, but I am not sure how to get that info. The count 1100 for נתן in the analysis pane seems to be the total count for the Hebrew Bible, not within the search results.


Is there an option somewhere that I am forgetting about or is this a quirk of the interaction between a syntax search and the analysis tools?

You could use a [contents] command to then search for all occurrences of just the word ntn in the hit verses.
