I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a search that I cannot seem to get to work. I'm trying to find infinitive constructs with the so-called "feminine" endings, e.g., יִרְאָה, דָּבְקָה. So far, I'm attempting the following with no luck.

[VERB infinitiveConstruct] @ה.*

If it were an imperative I could use the tag modifier "paragogic Hey," but since it's an infinitive, this option is not available. Any help would be very much appreciated.

I kept playing around and figured it out. The "root" argument needed to be in quotes.

 

[VERB infinitiveConstruct] @"ה*."

Yes, but there is no need for a period. However, if you want to eliminate the instances where the hey is part of the root you need:

The order of the expressions that are joined by @ does not matter.

 

This finds all Infinitive Constructs where the inflected form (in quotes) ends in hey, but the lexical form does not.
