    Default can you search for lemma from the command line?

    A colleague remembers that in BW 6, you could type a Greek lemma in the command line and return lemma results. Now when you do this, you get only the form's results.

    Is there a way to do a lemma search without the two step process of (1) typing a generic form of the word in the command line, then (2) right clicking your result in the browse window and clicking "search on Lemma?"

    The problem is you may be thinking of one thing and doing another. If I understand you correctly this would be an example of what you want.

    1. In the Command Line (CL) type "bgm" (no quotation marks) - this brings up the morphology database

    2. in the CL type ".agapaw" That would find all occurences of the lemma agapaw regardless of tense, mood voice, etc.

    Is that what you were looking for?

    Default Yes, that's it.

    Thanks very much. We had not thought of searching on a morphologically tagged version. It works like a charm.
