I did a search in the Morph section and when I put the cursor in different locations, it brought different results. Any ideas?

Parameters: All Morph Text in All Passages in NASB95

I started out with this search: 

lemma:ἀγαπάω@V??M

This gives 9 results with the English word "love"

Next, I added a space before the @ symbol and hit enter

lemma:ἀγαπάω @V??M

This gives 143 results and appears to give the different word forms for ἀγαπάω like "love" or "loves" or "beloved".

But then I moved the cursor to the end of the query instead of right before the @ symbol and it changes the query to:

lemma:ἀγαπάω <LogosMorphGr ~ V??M????>

This gives 60 results and shows different English words like "pray" or "honor" or "sell" or "lend" and others. They don't seem to be connected to me.  

I'm not sure why it's changing when I move the cursor or what the change is showing. I'm hoping someone is enough of a Logos nerd to know what's happening here.

Welcome Big Smile

Equivalent search is: lemma:ἀγαπάω INTERSECTS <LogosMorphGr ~ V??M????>

Rob Dent:

Next, I added a space before the @ symbol and hit enter

lemma:ἀγαπάω @V??M

This gives 143 results and appears to give the different word forms for ἀγαπάω like "love" or "loves" or "beloved".

Equivalent search is: lemma:ἀγαπάω AND @V??M  (search for lemma:ἀγαπάω AND an imperative mood verb in the same verse)

Thank you! I am still wondering about the second search I did though. Why does it give a different result (with 143 results) when I hit enter and the cursor is before the @ symbol?

Next, I added a space before the @ symbol and hit enter

lemma:ἀγαπάω @V??M

This is the culprit - it makes the difference between the morphology being restricted to the lemma  and the morphology & lemma being two separate elements.  The cursor is irrelevant ...as you will see if you walk through your scenario without adding the space.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Morph Search of SBL Greek New Testament for lemma:ἀγαπάω @V??M finds 60 verses (as SBL Greek New Testament has one Morphology for interpreting @V??M to find Greek Imperative Mood verbs). Search results have two colors.

Morph Search of NASB95 for lemma:ἀγαπάω @V??M has 143 results (as NASB95 has three Reverse Interlinear Morphologies so @V??M is silently ignored). Equivalent search lemma:ἀγαπάω has 143 results. Search results have one color.
