I'm using Logos 4 and have little understanding of word searching beyond right-click -> "search this resource". In Judges 4:6, I wanted to search the collocation       וַתִּשְׁלַ֗ח וַתִּקְרָא֙, but I didn't want my search to be limited to the feminine singular. Is there a way to do that?

Hi Joshua - and welcome to the forums

Joshua Clarke Cushing:
I'm using Logos 4

My first recommendation would be to upgrade to Logos 6 (assuming your system meets the requirements) as Logos 4 is no longer supported. The free engine is available from 

The particular reason why this would be useful is that "phrase searching" was introduced in Logos 6.7 which gives you what you are looking for.

In the right-click menu below you will see options to search for the phrase with or without specifying morphology

The resultant search - without specifying morphology - is shown below (with the search string being "lemma:וְ BEFORE 4 CHARS lemma:שׁלח BEFORE 4 CHARS lemma:וְ BEFORE 4 CHARS lemma:קרא:1")

and - for completeness - with matching morphology you get

If, for some reason, you can't upgrade to Logos 6 you should be able to paste the search string into a search window in Logos 4 and get the same results

Hope this helps, Graham
