Is this the correct construct for searching the WTM for ALL Qere/Ketiv hits.

I did not see away to search for both, but since there could not be a qere without and ketiv, I assume searching for one will find both.

*@*?*+*Rq

You can search for both the Rq and the Rk by putting the q and k within braces in the search. Here is how the search would look:

.*@*+*R{qk (.*@*+*R{qk)}*

You may be able to do away with the +* also, but I didn't check to see if there is any other R present in the primary parsing codes. This way you will only search on qere and kethiv, and not some other part of speech.

I believe that the qere/kethiv code is always last so *@*R{qk} should work. To check this out just do the two searches and see if they give the same results.
