Hello all,

Is there a way in Logos to search up a family of words quickly.

For example, the Greek word διακονια means service, but linked with it are words like διακονος, also all the verbs that are associated with it.

Sometimes you have words such as λογος, which can be combined with with some prefixes and preposition.

Is there an easy way to just search all those words of the same root?

Thanks in advance.

Jack

You can't search for roots, but you can use wild cards in a Bible search. Something like διακο* will work, as well as *λογο* .

LXGRCANLEX or Lexham Analytical Lexicon to the New Testament will give give the appropriate cognates from which you can make a more accurate search  e.g.

  lemma:διακονέω, lemma:διακονία, lemma:διάκονος

lemma:διακο*  will omit the results from the last cognate above because of the inflection mark, but will also include results from a non-related lemma.

Root search has been promised for some time in the future, but you might want to add your vote to Stem/Cognate Search anyway.

Root search is now available in Logos 5 (although you will have to wait for the Crossgrade or Free software to be available if an Upgrade is not affordable).
