Hi! I'm studying a passage with a double negative and I thought I'd do a quick search to see where else they occur and how they are translated. Can you help me understand why this search does not work? <Lemma = lbs/el/οὐ> WITHIN 1 WORD <Lemma = lbs/el/μή> Thank you! Joe

What Bible are you running the search against? 

In an original language text it returns the results as expected

It looks like I did not have a Greek text highlighted. I was searching in the ESV. Thank you!

I cant verify, but does this search catch everything:

{Section <GramCon EmphNeg>}

I grabbed this from Greek Grammatical Constructions Dataset Documentation
https://ref.ly/o/cidbdocgkgram/15039?length=4294967295

I bet it works in ESV.

Whoa! That is awesome! How do you find search terminology for other grammatical constructions?
