    Default collucation search

    I need to find out how to perform a collucation search for when the word rv,a}, follows the blessing
    formula &WrB, (Qal passive participle) + proper name/pronoun as in the case of Ruth 2:20

    The following search looks for the passive participle of $rb followed by rva within 20 words. The ";5" lets the search cross over 5 verses.
    'rva *20 $rb@vqs*;5

    Woops. Sorry, I forgot to add the proper noun:

    'rva *20 *@np* *5 $rb@vqs*;5

    The above adds any proper noun within 5 words of $rb.

    Woops. forgot the pronoun too.

    To search on the same thing with a pronoun instead of a proper noun, switch *@p* for the *@np* in the above string.
