1. Where is the best place to go to learn how to write complex syntax searches?

3. What would be the best way to write a search so as to find all accusatives of general reference (where the subject of an infinitive is a noun in the accusative)?

My search parameters:

Matching Skip Levels allows multiple hits

One strategy is using Morph Search to approximate Syntax Search: e.g. find infinitive within three words of an accusative noun

@V??N WITHIN 3 WORDS @NA

Next open Clause Visualization resource to look at verse structure followed by creating Syntax Search to find desired structure: e.g. 1 Timothy 2:1
