Hey all

I'm trying to find all interrogative sentences in Luke.Can anyone help? 

{Section <Sentence ~ Interrogative>} does NOT work.

Like so many others, Logos search functions baffle me. To add to the frustration, parameters change over time, so that the templates no longer function and the Help chat person told me to dismiss search strings I find on the forum that are for earlier versions (eg, Logos 7). Crazy!

Thanks for any help you can offer

This one works 

{Section <Sentence ~ Interrogative>} AND {Section <SpeechAct = Info: Quest>}

Try the Bible Browser.

1. Click Bible Books and choose New Testament, then Luke to get all the verses in Luke.

2 Click on Sentences Types and then choose Interrogative Sentence.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Robert. Unfortunately, it is still returning 0 results for me. Could it be due to the fact that I have not purchased the full feature set for Logos 8?

Thanks Lane, I know for certain that I do not have Bible Browser functionality because I've not upgraded my feature set.  But I thought surely there would be a way to make such a simple search with a version of the software that is just a couple years old.

What Bible are you searching? It has to be one that FL has coded for this information. Edit: it needs to be an original language text or a version that has a RI (and it currently is only coded for Greek). For example, it won't work for the REB, but it does work for the ESV and NASB95.

You do need to own or have a license for the Sentence Types and Speech Acts datasets, as well.

I'm searching ESV. How do I know which datasets I have access to?

In Logos click on the three vertical dots on the upper right hand side of the page. Select About Logos Bible Software. The left hand column in the panel that opens has a list of all the datasets you have. The datasets you want to check are under the grouping "Supplemental Data"

Search your library for “dataset documentation“

you are looking for the one that says Sentence Types

Looks like you need either Bronze or full feature upgrade

Alternative search for {Section <Sentence ~ Interrogative>} is Morph Search for Interrogative words (adverB, Relative pronoun, parTicle):

<LogosMorphGr ~ BI> OR <LogosMorphGr ~ RI?????> OR <LogosMorphGr ~ TI>

"Supplemental Data" does not have DB:SD-SENTENCE-TYPES nor DB:SD-SPEECH-ACTS in my demonstration Faithlife account, which has an order total of $ 0.00 (so replicated {Section <Sentence ~ Interrogative>} and {Section <SpeechAct = Info: Quest>} returning 0 results). Thankful for Logos 8 upgrade purchase including free gift of Logos 7 Fundamentals (ESV plus more).
