I'm trying to construct Greek language search that accomplishes the following:

  • identifies two specific lemmas (both nouns in this case)
  • identifies that one lemma is in the genitive case
  • identifies that the noun in the genitive modifies the other noun

For example, I would like to search for θεός (genitive) modifying βασιλεία, or Χριστός (genitive) modifying αἷμα.

I fear this type of search falls somewhere in between Morph and Syntax searches. How would you go about constructing this search?

The best I've been able to come up with results in false positives. (e.g. Rev 1:5 has both but the genitive is not modifying the second noun)

lemma:βασιλεία WITHIN 2 WORDS lemma:θεός@NG

lemma:αἷμα WITHIN 2 WORDS Χριστοῦ

Thank you very much!

One further question: How did you include the OR in your syntax search?

Hover near an edge and click the + symbol.

Thanks Dave, after some experimenting I've got it to work!

Just curious, how/why do you have a dotted line between the Phrase1 and TerminalNode1?

Right click the Terminal node and choose "Matching skips levels" when there could be other items between them e.g. another phrase or clause. It allows you to specify the items of interest without having to cater for every possibility. The dotted line signifies that.

Thanks Dave, good to know, and it for others trying: it can give quite a few results!
