Maybe someone already knows the answer to this question, but does omega-iota subscript ever occur in the LXX or NT without an accent on it?

I have tried using wildcard characters, but I cannot seem to get any search to even work looking for something like: .*ῳ*

I have tried with accent sensitive searching on and off.
I thought to look in the transliterated Greek NT, but iota-subscripts are not included.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Do you mean just an omega-iota-subscript in a word by itself or as part of a word? With accents off, type in .w| , then switch to the graphical search engine and you can add the *'s before and after it if you like and then do your search. There are plenty if you mean this string to be found in a word, but there are none if you mean just an omega-iota-subscipt with no accent on its own.

Was that what you were looking for or something else?

Thanks, Michael, but this still is not working for me.
I'm looking for omega-iota subscript anywhere in any word. [results like τῳ αὐτῳ Ηηρῳδης ]

I had actually tried the GSE approach, but I got the same results as I did when using the command line (and, with accents on, using the wildcard button to insert that character before/after my w| ).
Using BGT, what comes back is: "The following word or form cannot be found in the current search version."

The only words I've found so far by scanning all w words are: ̔Ηρῳδιάς ̔Ηρῳδίων

What am I missing? Thanks.

Tell me if this query is what you wanted, cuz I'm still not 100% sure. But running this I had 5000 some results...

Thanks, Michael. That is what I was looking for.
I see now that I forgot to turn on accents when I was in the GSE.

I'm still not sure why it shouldn't work properly from the command line...
Thanks again.
