I'm trying to find all stand alone occurrences of "aleph tav"... with no hyphen following it.

So, it should be

<white space>aleph tav<white space>

I couldn't figure out how to exclude all occurences where "aleph tav" is followed by a hyphen.

thanks for your help

Hi, Abide77,

See the attached query. You have to use the GSE to do it.

When you open the query double click on the Ordering box (it reads 'Exactly 0'). Note in the dialog that comes up that I have set Punctuation to Exclude. The default is Allow.

By excluding the maqqef and sof pasuq, you get all instances of )T without a maqqef following.

Blessings.
