I created a syntax search to find infinitives as objects of a specified preposition in the Cascadia Syntax Graphs of the New Testament.  It works fine for some prepositions but two (so far) do not come up. If I enter, for the lemma "g:pros" or "g:pro", the Greek prepositions do not appear in the list.  The steps I took were:

  1. File, Syntax Search.
  2. Search All Passages in Cascadia Syntax Graphs of the New Testament.
  3. Select Template: Prepositional Object (Cascadia).
  4. Word 1: Morphology = @V??N  (e.g., Infinitive)
  5. Terminal Node 1: Lemma = g:pro or g:pros

Can someone else confirm this, or is something wrong with my intallation? Thanks.

Hey Terry,

I can confirm that this seems to be a problem with the syntax search. I wasn't able to get προς in my the dropdown with the g: or Greek characters. A work-around would be to copy προς from somewhere else in the program and paste it into the lemma box.

Exactly the same things applies with OpenText searching - i.e. you can't select πρός from the drop-down menu in the lemma field. You can from the text field in both.
