1) Is the ASE Quere example (#5, p. 143) on Word Filters for Conditional Agreement (Bibleworks ASE directory sample: wrdfiltr.qf) correct?

*@n* does not appear to search for participles!

So what query would find article + participle with no words intervening?

2) How do I export an ASE query into my Command Line so I can learn morphological codes in the command line better, and vice versa?

3) How do I tell statistics in the Word List Manager?
For example, I want to know what prepositions are used with pisteu,w.
Can BW tell me statistically how many times the verb occurs with eis, en, epi etc.?


Wasn't able to construct these with the Manual.
Thanks for any help.

You are correct. This query will not search for participles.

To change the query to search for participles you would need to modify the word box currently containing the *@n* to *@vp*



2) How do I export an ASE query into my Command Line so I can learn morphological codes in the command line better, and vice versa?

The ASE and the command line execute their searches differently. You are not able to export an ASE query back to the command line. There are a lot of more advanced features within the ASE that cannot be done on the command line.

However you are able to import a command line search into the ASE.

You can do this two ways:

1. If you have the ASE open and you construct a command line search go to Utils - Import Command Line (from within the ASE).

2. If you construct a command line search and then open the ASE it will take your command line query and construct an ASE query for you.


3) How do I tell statistics in the Word List Manager?
For example, I want to know what prepositions are used with pisteu,w.
Can BW tell me statistically how many times the verb occurs with eis, en, epi etc.?

The Word List Manager is not really the place to get statistics.

The following command line search will find all the prepositions used with pisteuw: .*@p* pisteuw@v*

Hope this helps.

Thanks, Joe. Makes sense, and very helpful.
