I am interested in searching the Greek text of the N.T. for all uses of φῶς light WITHOUT the article ὁ the. How could this be done?

Hi Bill,

This form might work for you

φῶς  -(ὁ, τὸ)

Thanks, Steve. I did a MORPH search using lemma:φῶς - (lemma:ὁ@D??N) but it still gve me forms with the article.

Steve, on second observation it appears that the search φῶς  -(ὁ, τὸ) will not find them all. For example, I noticed that it missed John 12:46.

Steve. By the grace of God and some experimentation I was able to do a SYNTAX SEARCH for what I wanted.

Very good Bill,

Glad that you were able to figure it out. i have never learned to use Syntax searching as i am not very good in original languages and grammar.

A way to get the same result w/out doing a syntax search is to do a morph search for lemma:φῶς -- display it in an Analysis chart, and pull the 'Previous word' into the heading to sort by this. You can now see where φῶς occurs w/out the article. This isn't as nice a display as the syntax search, but for those who don't like the syntax search it is a way around it.
