So, I searched the original search in my first post (only adding a within one between the specifier and the clause) without the negation of the specificer, and things look a lot better. So, just as with a morphological search, the negation isn't functioning properly with searching syntax. It seems to me that it is messing with the highest level phrase also somehow because it is being taken into account properly with the specifier being a + rather than a -.
There are still a few not coming back that should be with the specifier +:
- 7:23 (οἱ ἐργαζόμενοι τὴν ἀνομίαν)
- 11:28 (οἱ κοπιῶντες καὶ πεφορτισμένοι)
- 13:20 (ὁ δὲ ἐπὶ τὰ πετρώδη σπαρείς & ὁ τὸν λόγον ἀκούων) -- This seems to be because of the δὲ.
I am just a normal joe who works a non-academic/non-clergy job. However, I recently decided to transition to using Accordance primarily (i.e., I plan to be giving you guys more of my money). However, I very much appreciate and use syntax databases for searching purposes. There seem to be some odd things happening here. I hope that people are considering these things as much as they were with morphology construct search (props to Helen responding so well to that). I want to honor Robert and the people that seem to engage a lot of the Hebrew side of things (my repentance?). However, I am focused on Koine in my studies more so. So, I would very much appreciate some feedback and thoughts. I also know that because I don't have all that much time to engage with things in personal time (less time in the near future with another kid coming. yay!), I don't want to continue to spend my own time messing with this if people aren't going to be engaging back with me from Accordance.
This is all said from a place of being practical not critical. I have seen great things from Accordance. I super appreciate the crew and the product. There is much I can say in praise of the product. I am just being honest with where I am at on this, and also it will help me to know going forward if I should really engage on the database, learning to search with better "aim," and honestly, if this is even helpful/something someone is going to do something about.
Shout out to דָנִיאֶל who seems always to be ready to engage on this and figure things out. I appreciate you!
