Hi, I want to find the different Greek roots for the root פלט. I search for "<Root = lbs/he/פלט>" in the LXX Swete but I get only Greek Lemmas not roots. In the Analysis I can see the column "root" but this column is a combination of Hebrew and Greek. I remember in BibleWorks it was possible to find the frequency how a Hebrew root is translated by the LXX. What is the best way to do it in Logos?

It is possible to get the root of a Greek lemma from the Context menu in the LXX Swete

Hi Dave, I am not looking for Greek roots, I am looking for a search summary, like: the Hebrew root פלט matches 3 Greek roots: 1,2,3… and 20 Lemmas: 1,2,3… Is such a search possible?

The best I can think of is searching for the Hebrew root and then - in Analysis view - sorting by Greek lemma (I appreciate this misses out the Greek root level)

Thanks Graham, I will put it into Logos 9 wish list. If a direct root to root search were possible we would have a much better overview. If I take your search and search for the root αρχω, I get already 9 subordinate Lemmas with 219 results. I think it's a great help to search root to root.

Appears Rahlf's Septuagint with Logos Morphology includes root tagging for many words:

Noticed Rahlf's LXX can lack Greek root tagging: e.g. ἀνασῴζω lacks σῴζω root. Removing Root from Analysis grouping shows more in Rahlf's LXX that lacks Greek root tagging:

Also learned Rahlf's LXX has Greek spelling that do not appear in Lexham Analytical Lexicon to the Septuagint: H.B. Swete Edition (and LXX Analytical Lexicon lacks Greek roots)

Mhh, so there is no way yet to find roots. I will add it to the wish list. Thanks
