Why does searching for דוד (David) find Uncle (דֹּד֖וֹ, Lev 20:20) as well?

Clearly I have some learning to do about the Hebrew Search. It doesn't behave as I expect. How does one go about learning the idiosyncrasies of searching hebrew?

 

Thanks!


My top 5 feature requests:
  1. 15pt font size for reading text (bible, journal articles, commentaries, etc...)
  2. Improved searching for Journal articles. (So we can search for journal article by verse + english text)
  3. Display Journal titles in journal search results. (Imagine a google search where you saw the page text but no headings?)
  4. Improved greek text search—i.e. allow searching of all greek text the same way you would search LXX+NT, i.e. LXX+NT+ApocFathers+etc...
  5. Phrase (sympathetic) highlighting.

The default search is for the lexical form, ignoring the voweling. If you pick the word from the list, and add an = before it, it will search based on the vowels (of the lexical form). Or you can add a condition such as @[NOUN prop] which would eliminate all forms except proper names.

 

Yes, there is a lot to learn when searching Hebrew.
