Accordance apparently doesn't allow a quick, simple search of four consecutive Hebrew letters if one of those letters functions as a prefix or suffix. In the competitor's software (see attached), I can simply type the four letters, put an asterisk (wildcard) on either side, and find all texts where those four letters appear together--*regardless of their grammatical function.*
Why should I need to know the grammatical function in Accordance order to perform a simple lexical search of four Hebrew letters of my choosing? This makes no sense whatsoever. Here's a great example: I found a word in the competitor's Qumran sectarian manuscripts (which doesn't include an English translation, like Accordance does); and that word is "ma-a-tsat" (spelled "mem-ayin-tsade-tav"), in 1QS Rule of the Community 6:3.
I came over to Accordance and figured that I could simply search "mem-ayin-tsade-tav" (and maybe include wildcards on either side too) and find all Hebrew texts where this occurred in Accordance, which would obviously include 1QS Rule of the Community 6:3. Then I could open the English version of this text, which Accordance wonderfully makes available, and be happily on my way.
But not so easy, because Accordance apparently doesn't allow something so simple--searching four consecutive Hebrew letters. Since the letter "mem" functions as a preposition on the front of "ma-a-tsat," Accordance didn't return any text results when I did "Research" -> "All." Instead, I had to fumble around, trying to figure out how to get to 1QS Rule of the Community 6:3 (which wasn't as easy as the competitor either, because there is no simple verse dropdown menu in Accordance). And so on...
Bottom line, it would be nice if you could not treat prefixes / suffixes (technically morphemes / glossemes) as separate words when it comes to searching. They aren't separate "words" in my opinion if they appear together in one whole morphological unit in the text. And even if you have a workaround for this issue, such as making a "Construct" and then searching it, that is extremely time-expensive compare to the competitor's software, which I also use.
