Is there any way to search for Greek proper nouns, say in GNM?

but you can do it in the BGM/BNM.
In the command line, use: .*@n???p

Note: this is one of the distinctions in terms of coding between the BNM and the GNM. Check out "Morphological Coding Schemes" in the BW Help to see the differences.

I believe someone has asked a similar question before and you can also use the Louw-Nida lexicon to develop a word list. I think the number 93 designates all proper nouns, but I can't guarantee that.

I think this (http://www.bibleworks.com/forums/showthread.php?4806-Female-proper-names&highlight=proper+nouns) is the thread I was thinking of.

Yours is a better answer, but mine shows that I still remember some of these posts over the years. Isn't that worth something? :cool:
