Good afternoon, fellow saints. May I please have help executing a lemma search based on certain morphology characteristics, please? What I have in mind is searching the Bible for the Lemma word for "blessed" as it appears in Psalm 1:1, but I'd like to only see the instances wherein the grammatical number is "single" instead of "plural".

Hi Henry, 

The easiest way is probably to start from Ps. 1:1, right click on the word blessed, select the lemma form in the right column, then choose the morph search with the current morphology entered. See screenshot...

This will open a search panel and run a search. Put your cursor in the search box and delete the last character to reopen the morphology dialog.

Change whatever parameter you wish to and hit enter to execute the new search!

BTW, there are no hits for the search you indicated.

One search suggestion is using OR so singular results has one set of colors (yellow noun, pink verb) while plural has different colors (blue noun, green verb) Psalms 1:1 "blessed" has a lemma (plural noun) with two roots.

(<LogosMorphHeb ~ N??S??> OR <LogosMorphHeb ~ N??P??> OR <LogosMorphHeb ~ V????S???> OR <LogosMorphHeb ~ V????P???>) INTERSECTS (<Root = lbs/he/אֶ֫שֶׁר> OR <Root = lbs/he/אשׁר:2>)

Screen shot shows search using Logos Hebrew morphology. Search could be expanded to include Aramaic.

FYI: used Morph Search picker for Singular & Plural Nouns & Verbs, followed by switching to Bible Search for Grid output.
