I am trying to become more proficient at the features available in the Bible Search window. One of the best ways to learn is to play around, and I ran into an unexpected result in one of my searches. I'm not for sure it is a bug, or maybe I just don't understand the proper way to use this feature, so here goes...

I ran a Bible Search (Search All Bible Text in New Testament in The New King James Version) for "tongue". In the standard "Verses" view, this yields 52 results in 49 verses, with the word "tongue" highlighted in each verse, as expected.

Next, I wanted to see what the "Analysis" feature can do, so I switched to that view. Then I dragged the "Greek Strong's" column to the header to group by that column.

There is now a grouping on the dash-character. This is what I think is an error. It seems to me it should instead be a grouping for the Greek Strong's number G1351, which is a word translated as "double-tongued". The hyphenated word seems to be messing with the results of the Analysis view. All other views seem to handle this word correctly.

I was hoping to test my theory by trying to find other hyphenated words, but I am unable to run a search on the hyphen character.

Can anyone confirm or clarify for me?

Thank you!

Yes, this does look like a bug to me. I've filed a case in our system to track it.

The Logos search index doesn't include punctuation. As a workaround, you can use Ctrl+F Find to find any character within a resource. I found that the problem occurred with “demon-possessed”, “self-control”, “self-seeking”, etc., showing that your hypothesis is correct.
