How can one perform a Hebrew morphological search that differentiates identical Hebrew roots? For example, the root [NH can mean either "be bowed down, afflicted" OR "answer, reply". My search for the root [NH returned occurrences for both. I wanted to know how many times [NH with the first meaning occurs.

See the attached query for a way to conduct such a search.

You can do the same thing David did using the commandline:
1. Set WTM as search version
2. type [nh
3. hit end key and type @v*+*Ha*
Ha = first homonym
Hb = second homonym, etc.

Should look like this: hn[@v*+*Hb*

Hi everyone. This is my first post, although I've owned Bibleworks 7 for many months. What a great program! I know I should have been able to figure this one out for myself, but...life gets busy, you know.


How do I search for all occurrances of, for example, the underlying Hebrew word for 'wounded' (KJV) nk in Proverbs 18:14? Is there any way to copy and paste rather than learning the Hebrew characters? I am afraid I am not a student of Hebrew.

You can right-click on the Hebrew word/phrase and then search by form or lemma. You don't have to type anything.
