I'm trying to search for all the periphrastic constructions in NA27 involving any form of eimi plus any form of a participle. For example, Mark 13:25 says "the stars will be (future eimi) falling (present participle of pipto). Can this be done. Thanks

The morph search lemma:εἰμί @V??P will find all occurrences of both words in a verse.

If you want them specifically within the same clause you would need a syntax search. Please advise if that would be helpful or if the search above gives you what you need.

And a syntax search, based on the construct in Mark 13:35, would look something like this:

Thanks for the reply. It is a syntax search I'm looking for, since the more general search, which I've already tried, returns too many results. However, I don't have the Cascadia Syntax Graphs feature

An alternate search is {Section <SGNTSyntacticForce = periphr. ptc.>} in SBLGNT

Lexham SGNT Syntactic Force Dataset is included in a number of packages.
