I can search for all occurrences where, for example, God is the agent and the verb-lemma is "bara'".

Now, how can I search for occurrences where the verb-lemma is "bara'" but the agent IS NOT God? The agent can be anyone or anything.

I have tried this:
agent:ANY verb-lemma:ברא.1  ANDNOT agent:God verb-lemma:ברא.1 

But apparently this is not retrieving the right result.

Nielsen Tomazini:

Try  verb-lemma:ברא.1  ANDNOT agent:God

This may indicate where an Agent is not assigned as much as an Agent whose name is other than God. Compare results with

agent:ANY verb-lemma:ברא.1  ANDNOT agent:God

This would indicate that Is 45.8 should have God as Agent.

Also compare with Clause Participants in a Word Study on bara; where the only Agent is God.
