What is it?

This new dataset identifies grammatical constructions in the Old Testament and finds other occurrences of the construction in the Bible. Example: Find all the tripartite nominal clauses in the Hebrew OT.

How does it work?

This dataset labels all instances of tripartite nominal clauses, verbless clauses, root pairs, weak verbs, geminate verbs, I Alef verbs, 1 Guttural verbs, 1 Nun verbs, 1 Yod verbs, II Guttural verbs, Hollow verbs (Waw), Hollow verbs (Yod), III Guttural verbs, III Alef verbs, III He verbs.

  • See how constructions are built by viewing examples from the Bible

  • Track down other occurrences of grammatical constructions

  • Compare how one author uses a construction against another

  • View all these constructions from the Exegetical Guide

The Hebrew Grammatical Constructions Documentation says that I should be able to search for weak verbs using {Section <GrammaticalConstructions weakverb>} in the Bible Search. This returns 0 results. Can anyone shed light on why this might be?

By chance I found a passage for this in ESV and the Context menu provided {Section <GrammaticalConstructions = Weak Verb>}; which suggests the documentation is incorrect for that and others like germinate.

The documentation is being updated with the new search strings. Somewhere between creating the initial documentation and implementing the data into the software the search strings were updated, and I didn't realize it. 

In the time between now and the update to the documentation the new search strings can be found here:

Verbless Clause: gramcon.vblscl
Tripartite Nominal Clause: gramcon.trinomcl
Root Pairs: gramcon.rootpairs
Weak Verb: gramcon.weakverb
Geminate Verb: gramcon.geminate
I Alef Verb: gramcon.ialef
I Guttural Verb: gramcon.iguttural
I Nun Verb: gramcon.inun
I Yod Verb: gramcon.iyod
II Guttural Verb: gramcon.iiguttural
Hollow Verb (Waw): gramcon.hollowwaw
Hollow Verb (Yod): gramcon.hollowyod
III Guttural Verb: gramcon.iiiguttural
III Alef Verb: gramcon.iiialef
III He Verb: gramcon.iiihe

The right side of the colon is the search term in the original documentation. The left side of the colon is the new search string which will be in the updated documentation, and which is currently implemented in the software.

Sorry for the lag in documentation.

As an ordinary non-technical user of the software, I will be at a loss for quite some time before being able to understand the terms being used in this thread let alone this new feature. Still, that's part of the joy of discovery and learning!  Keep well Paul

Thanks, Dave. This works as expected.

Thanks for your reply, Jimmy.

Unfortunately, I was unable to get a search syntax that worked for gramcon dot weakverb. I tried:

{Section <gramcon.weakverb>}

{Section <GrammaticalConstructions = gramcon.weakverb>}

{Section <GrammaticalConstructions gramcon.weakverb>}

gramcon.weakverb

None of them worked.

While new features sound exciting, they quickly lose their lustre if they don't perform as expected. Perhaps you should hire Dave to work on documentation.

What Dave said and what Jimmy said match.   From  what jimmy said- it's the left side of the colon that works.  The right side will not.  Your examples of things not working are from the right side of the colon.

Right side (after ": gramcon.") matches "Hebrew Grammatical Constructions Documentation" that does not work.

Left Side preceding colon matches Right Click in resource; looking forward to documentation update.

Edit: Documentation Table of Contents has "s" added to clause and verb compared to GrammaticalConstructions search term. Noticed "Root Pairs" matches search term.

Search term also matches milestone (location) in "Hebrew Grammatical Constructions Documentation"

You are quite right. I misread the description.
