What is it?

Go beyond simple syntax and explore Scripture’s underlying meaning: the Clause Participants Section classifies people, places, and things by how they relate to the action of the clause—not just its sentence structure. Discover how people, places, and things occur in a clause, both grammatically and semantically. We've upgraded clause participants to not only know what syntactic role a person, place or thing plays in a clause (e.g. subject, object, etc.) but also the semantic role (e.g. agent, patient, stimulus, experiencer, etc.). This gets closer to the meaning of a clause rather than just the way it's expressed grammatically.

How does it work? 

Search a Greek or Hebrew verb in a Bible Word Study report, then choose the subject, direct object, and indirect object associated with that verb for a grammatical search. This section also allows you to switch to a semantic roles view and discover the various semantic roles associated with  the verb like agent, patient, experiencer, or beneficiary. 

For example, when you look up the Greek verb therapeuō (to heal), you’ll discover subjects and objects tied to this verb as well as agents and patients. So even in cases where Jesus heals someone but isn't the subject of the clause, the new clause participants section surfaces these occurrences.

Semantic roles are also available in Clause Search.

Open in Logos 6

How do I get it? 

The Clause Participants Section is available in Feature Crossgrade and higher and Silver level base packages and higher

I am a little confused on how this feature is supposed to work. Do you think that there may be a video coming soon to show how this may work? I have just upgraded from L4 and have not had clause search before so I am behind in knowing how this worked to begin with. THANKS!!
