Underlying Hebrew: BHS SESB 2.0 (tags proper nouns)

visual filter query: ([field bible, content] <SESBMorphHeb ~ NP???+S???>)

Anyway it hits all the proper nouns in the hebrew portion, then when Ezra 4:8 hits no more proper nouns are marked by my filter (not even Jerusalem) marked in SESB: noun, proper, unmarked gender, singular, absolute.... any ideas what I did wrong with my filter?

Thanks,

That text is Aramaic, not Hebrew. It uses a different morphology. Try this: ([field bible, content](<SESBMorphHeb ~ NP???+S???>,<SESBMorphAram ~ NP???+S???>))

yeah that worked,

I had used the drop down boxes and it built the query for me.

I didn't see a place in there to select Aramaic. It's funny I looked at the query it built and just assumed Logos treated Aramaic as Hebrew since there was no a: (just g: and h:) when building the query this way

Thanks, that's what I get for doing this after 2AM my time.

THanks Andrew

The Hebrew/Aramaic choice is found on the morphology picker when doing a morph search.

aaaah I see the little guy up there now, thanks!

duh

I think the problem is I quickly type @ then n for noun

and I've bypassed the picker, also not usually in Aramaic passages, thanks

***edit ***

nope I'm wrong it's always there at the top

The reason there is no "a:" is because that's a mechanism for untransliterating to a particular script. Hebrew and Aramaic both use Hebrew script, so they both use "h:".

technically they both use Aramaic script, but I'm clowning around now. 

thanks for the clarification.

:) Fair enough. I'm not actually an expert, even though I sometimes sound like one.
