Newbie help with grammatical tags and @ sign
Posted 01 August 2011 - 12:29 PM
Under the Search menu I choose Enter Lexical Form and choose "ish"
Under the Search menu I choose Enter Tag --> Suffix, and chose 3rd person, fem, sing
Accordance automatically inserts the @ sign between the two elements.
I click the search button and get this message: ' There are no verses in the current range of the "BHS-W4 text, which fit the current search entry.'
I click OK, and after a lot of trial and error, I remove the @ and leave a SPACE between the 2 elements and the search finds what I am looking for -- 39 hits.
I've been reading the manuals and watching the videos until I am crosseyed and everything says I need the @ symbol here. What am I doing wrong? How do I know when to remove the @ sign?

I still wonder why Accordance adds the @ when you insert the suffix tag. Maybe someone else can clarify.

Usually when people enter a word followed by a tag they do want them to apply to the same item, this is why Accordance adds the @.
Isn't it always false when it comes to the suffix? I mean if the suffix is tagged as a separate morpheme then how can the @ ever be relevant?

Of course, Accordance could be programmed NOT to put the @ when adding [SUFFIX] after a lemma or root, but no-one has complained about it, and the developers have a very long honey-do list as it is.

To get no pronom suffixes at all, I think you will have to shift click each one to select all the options, and then NOT the entire selection on that line.
A little tiresome, but it should work.
Can anyone else think of a better way of doing it?

[NOUN] <NOT> <FOLLOWED BY> <WITHIN 1 > [SUFFIX}
which is fairly easy to construct using the drop down menus
or set it up in the Construct tab:
Noun_not_suffix.png 14.2KB 7 downloads
which is way more elegant.
Longtime users need to remember that until 9 the Construct always assumed adjacent words, but it no longer does, so we do need to add the WITHIN connecting item.
