Hi All,


I having an issue with search results and the concordance. As an example, when I search for all direct object markers in DSSB-M ( [PARTICLE object] ) it says there are 1959 hits, but the concordance says 1958.


Further, when I set a range the count is even more problematic. Example, I searched for ‏ ‎[PARTICLE object]‏ ‎[RANGE 1q5]‏ ignoring bracketed words and the search window says there are 12 results and so does the concordance. But it only says 12, it actually lists 16 (if I am reading the list correctly - 1Q5 f1:1–3; f3:1; f4:3; f5:2–f6:1; f8ii:2–3, 5; f9:3; f10:3–4; f12_13i:1–4, 6, 9; f13ii:1, 4–8; f14:1, 3–f15:3; f38:2). The following screen grab might help clarify the problem. Both windows say there are twelve hits, but the concordance (highlighted in blue for 1Q5) lists 16. Several of those listed do not appear to have any direct object markers (e.g. 1 Q5 f3:1)


What am I missing here?

I suggest:

  1. Set Concordance Display: limit the Concordance to the range of the search, and it will be much easier to see what it's doing. There are lots of other options there as well.
  2. Understand that the Concordance shows the lemmas found in the search, whether or not each incidence matches the search query.

For example, if you search for Adam <AND> Eve (i.e. in the same verse) and run the Concordance, it will show every occurrence of those words whether or not the AND condition applies.
