  • What's a "lexeme" in A-F syntax search (and how do I discover them)?

    What's a "lexeme" in A-F syntax search? I ask because A-F seem to have a variety of criteria for what constitutes an independent "lexeme." They also seem to be inconsistent. This can be problematic for searches based on "lexemes," as it is difficult to be sure whether one has tagged of the various "A-F lexemes" that cover the one word a researcher is

  • Re: Syntax query (construct relations excluding certain nouns)

    Thanks for the responses again guys (this forum is awesome). I post my concerns about A-F's definition of a "lexeme" in a separate post. To reiterate, my issue isn't that my (or anyone's) knowledge of Hebrew isn't good enough to grasp A-F's tagging scheme (I think they're justified in have three lexemes for God: אל, אלוה,אלהים), my issue is the mixed

  • Re: Syntax query (construct relations excluding certain nouns)

    Guys, that was really helpful. I see my mistake now. My problem was, as David P. says, that I thought the gloss "god/God" was covered by just one "lexeme": אלהים. I now see that it is covered by a host of other "lexemes" (whatever that means for A-F, it's not defined in the glossary), including אלה 5. So, what have I learnt? I should check if my understanding

  • Syntax query (construct relations excluding certain nouns)

    This search query ought to be really simple, but it doesn't work. Am I doing something wrong or is there a hitch in the system? Here it is, along with some of the results on the left: I want to look for all cases in which a noun with the semantics "deity" is used in the construct state (e.g. יהוה in Ps 24:10). I don't want to see the term אלהים, however

  • Re: Comparing CHALOT to HALOT

    I use the German dictionary in the library here, so I can't give you a screen shot. But I can safely say you'll be gaining a lot of extra information: etymological, syntactica, semanticl. The definitions are far more nuanced with more Bible references. CHALOT is my favourite dictionary for quick reference, but if it's your only dictionary you'll want

    I was on the L4 Beta, but I thought that was over now. As far as I know, my programme has been consistently automatically updated over the Internet, though I'm not sure how to figure out what "model" I have now (i.e. "b" or whatever).

    I did precisely what you suggest and tried it again with טוב, but it doesn't work. I don't get the yellow box symbol that appears on your screen (I scrolled up and down to find it, and closed and re-opened the dictionary to see if it would appear).

  • Adding notes to dictionaries

    In the image aboveI have my dictionary (CHALOT) opened to ארץ. A note is added to this term (as "selection," not as "keyword," I'm not sure what the "keyword" option means, when I use it I can't see a link to my note). This note contains additional information about that term (semantic fields). At the moment I can only see this information when I look

    Dave Hooten has explained the function of the node "gap" to me, which produces an even better search, I think. I've posted it here: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/15684/119516.aspx#119516 .

    Thanks for your reply! That was really helpful, especially as it helps me re-create, to a degree , the syntax of Ps 122:7-8, as discussed in the comments here http://community.logos.com/forums/t/12328.aspx?PageIndex=2 . Here are my logical steps: Here you have "crossing lines" in the sense of ellipsis of the verb and benefactive. Your term "structure

    Could someone exlpain the meaning of the terms "gap" and "group" in the A-F syntax search? Thanks in advance.

  • Re: Syntax

    Final comment on my "clunky" search! I forget to edit the lexical items as I used it for another search. You would just put each of the terms of the word pair you are researching in the segment section (for Ps 122:7 that would be שלום and ארמן). The results are clunky as for Ps 122:7 you'd get two results, one for each possibility. For other examples

    Sorry, I've just realized that you all responded to my post! I didn't notice that there was a page 2 right after my comments. Thanks for your help. I used Jing (.png format). I should add that the clunky search query above is only good when you are specifically looking for cases of parallelism in which the terms שלום and ארמן appear in two clauses that

  • Re: Syntax

    Guys, thank you so much for your feedback. My query is actually more specific than the way I originally expressed it. In other words I am strictly interested in the syntax of v. 7 only, despite the fact that v. 8 is part of the clause (by virtue of ellipsis of the predicate) and irrespective of the benefactive . For this reason, the solutions by Fred

  • Re: Syntax

    Could someone tell me how to emulate the structure of Ps 122:7 so that I can search for other structures? I feel I'm not to bad in doing syntactic searches, but this one is tough. I own Logos 4 and 3, use 3 for syntax searches as I haven't time to figure out version 4 yet.

  • Syntax search for parallel clauses with ellipsis

    I'm trying to repeat the basic syntactic structure of Ps 122:7 so that I can search others with the same structure, but I can't repeat it. I presume this is due to ellipsis: the predicate in the clause in v.7a is also the predicate in v. 7b (ellipsis). The same applies to their joint "benefactive," which is in v. 8. Each attempt I make meets with "no

    Thank you all for your responses, sorry for my late reply. Edwin said: You seem to think that Logos should be posting a price that says "The print edition is available at the discounted price of $ from some other source . No, I just figured comparing pre-pub to Logos sale price would make sense. I now know to be careful when only two prices are compared
