How would I best find all words in the book of Colossians which have a prefix σύν (sun) in the Greek [such as σύνδουλος = fellow-servant in Col 1:7]?

Hi Bill, 

This is how I would do it.  The Logos power users may know of a better way.  

Blessings, 

Kevin

Thanks, Kevin.

I used συν* ANDNOT συν and ti seemed to work. But maybe there is another way to do it.

Thanks for sharing that.  I am still getting used to the search parameters.  

Blessings,

ANDNOT will prevent situations where the word συν is in the same verse as another word that starts with συν (such as Mark 15:32). You'll probably want this instead:

συν* NOT EQUALS συν

The NOT EQUALS operator will prevent instances where συν and συν* are the same word.
