    MJ, That lemma in lls also has 254 results in 84 articles in Qumran Sectarian Manuscripts, for those who have it.

  • Re: Question: Hebrew Lexicons and Dictionaries

    I should have mentioned another drawback to BDB. Because it analyzes words in terms of triliteral roots, it has to invent a triliteral root for the words with only two consonants, usually either a geminate or a hollow root. Also, there are some Hebrew words which oscillate between two different root patterns (hollow/geminate or pe-yod/pe-nun). It give

  • Re: Question: Hebrew Lexicons and Dictionaries

    Lee, I think that George, David and I are largely in agreement. HALOT is my number one lexicon, BDB is my number two lexicon, and I use TDOT, NIDOTTE and TLOT for in-depth analysis on certain theological words on occasion. The advantage of TDOT etc is that they also give you a bibliography of other relevant articles and books. One feature I like about

  • What lemma tagging scheme is used for Dictionary of Classical Hebrew?

    First of all, many thanks for making this resource available at a reasonable price. One of the great difficulties in tagging the lemmas in this work is that the DCH frequently has more lemma entries for the same set of root letters than either BDB or HALOT. For example, BDB has four entries for ענה: to answer, to be occupied or busy, to oppress, and

  • Re: Question: Hebrew Lexicons and Dictionaries

    You're welcome, Whyndell! That Linguistic Studies series is superb. I had bought two in hardback--Joshua Blau's book mentioned previously, and Andersen/Forbes on their Andersen-Forbes Analyzed Text--before I bought the entire series in hardback. As a Logos user, you should look at the Andersen/Forbes book if you intend to do Syntax Searches. I shall

  • Re: Question: Hebrew Lexicons and Dictionaries

    For in depth study of certain theological words, I like Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament, Theological Lexicon of the Old Testament and New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology and Exegesis. For a quick look-up, and for words that are not covered in the above lexicons, I use both HALOT and BDB. BDB does not have the Ugaritic

  • Re: Searching for Greek prepositions in Logos 6

    At some point, you might consider using Syntax Search options, which take a bit more time to set up but are often much more powerful than morph searches. Here, you can do in Cascadia, a Syntax Search of a Prepositional Phrase dividing into the Terminal Node dia followed by a word in the genitive case.

  • Re: "Distances in maps?"

    Rick, This is a real problem for distances less than a mile. Unfortunately, they use either the ghastly metric system or decimal fractions of a mile. They don't use furlongs and chains.

  • Re: TDOT issue

    Michael, TDOT actually has better links than I realized, so keep up the good work. I did more extensive testing on TDOT this morning and all the verbs I tried had the proper links. Yesterday, I was doing work on justification in the Old Testament and the link for צָדַק was not working and so I checked on the Logos Forums to see if there had been any

  • Re: Searching Septuagint Morphology

    Mark, I just reduplicated your search methods here. When this is fixed, this will be a very helpful method for verifying translation technique of different books in the Septuagint. The various books by William Wevers (who did the Gottingen Septuagint for all five books of the Pentateuch, together with books on the textual history of the Greek text and

  • Re: TDOT issue

    Rick, this is a list of TLOT words that I compiled over two years ago as having problems with the linking. I have not rechecked all of them, but suspect that the issue is still unresolved. I have made a comparison of BDB and TLOT to look where BDB has more than one lemma for an entry in TLOT. Then, I started right-clicking in Bibles on words that could

  • Re: TDOT issue

    Rick, I completely understand that TDOT, like TLOT, is not exhaustive. However, there are problems linking the reverse interlinears with both of these resources to many lemmas where there are articles in these resources. Right-click on any occurence the verb צדק in either the NRSV or BHS say, and you will not find an entry to the appropriate article

  • Re: BH Verbs Categorized by Root Type?

    I have created a morphological Visual Filter using Logos Hebrew Morphology for all these types of weak verbs. Most of them are straightforward. For example, lemma:נ*@V is for Initial-Nun verbs. For Final He verbs, I use lemma:*ה@V ANDNOT lemma:היה. This eliminates the verb hayah, which I find handy to do. Similarly, for Middle-Yod verbs, I use lemma

  • No "Heading Text" search in Aquinas's Summa Theologica

    I tried searching for "Simplicity" in the Large Text field in Aquinas's Summa Theologica and it shows no results. It is the same if you search for "God." This is because the only things tagged as Large Text are "First Article," "Second Article," etc. and there is no Heading Text field in the Summa Theologica. This severely limits the ability to do specialized

  • Re: TIP of the day: subject vs. nominative vs. agent

    M.J. This was a very helpful post. I did not realize that you could bring in aspects normally associated with Clause searches into Morphological Searches. You can simplify the search by writing @NN WITHIN 0 WORDS rather than writing out the lemma--I tried it and it works fine.
