I'm working with Aristotle.  I have the Loeb opened side by side, Greek - English.  I want to find every occurrence of a Greek word.  How do I do a search that finds that word in all of its various forms?

Thank you

Suggest searching for Greek lemma: e.g.

(<Lemma = lbs/el/μέθοδος>,investigation)

OK, I'm lost.  What does lbs or el or investigation have to do with the search?  I don't know how to create my own search.  

But thank you for taking the time to try to help me.

Larry Craig:

Right click a Greek word, select Lemma on the right side (hover over the word to see "Lemma"). On the left side select a Search:-

  • This resource will open a Morph Search with something like lemma:τοιοῦτος
  • All open resources will open Basic Search with <Lemma = lbs/el/τοιοῦτος>

Both queries are essentially the same, but the first will only work with a Morph Search. <Lemma = lbs/el/τοιοῦτος> will work in a Morph Search as well as a Basic Search, so lbs and el are part of the necessary format.

Thank you, Dave.  I'm making progress here.  I see that if I click on basic instead of morph, it shows the lemmas in context as part of the document, which I would rather have.

Thank you very much.  I'm learning.
