View Full Version : Hebrew vowels sort order

Could anybody explain which sort order does BibleWorks use for the Hebrew vowels (in case two words have the same consonants)?
Thanks in advance.

This is not an official list, and I have done only a cursory check, but it appears to proceed as follows
non-dagesh consonants precede dagesh consonants
1. a class vowels (qamets before patach before chatef qamets before chatef patach)
2. i/e class vowels
3. o/u class vowels
4. simple sheva last
If you spend a little time with the word list window in the Command Center, you could refine this.
Hope that helps some.
