I asked this as a secondary question in my previous post, but the thread concentrated on my first question. What counts as 'both directions' when you have three items in your search?
I built three searches for a Hifil verb + 2 Complements (see attached workspace). For each search I ran it as unidirectional and bidirectional. I cannot make sense out of the results.
Hifil + Comp + Comp: uni = 1098 hits and bi = 1105 hits
Comp + Comp + Hifil: uni = 26 hits and bi = 1105 hits
So 'search both directions' yields the same result (1105) but 1098 + 26 = 1124.
For Comp + Hifil + Comp, uni = 258 and bi = 230! Why does search both directions result in less hits than a unidirectional search?
