    Question Syntactic searches possible?

    I wonder if anyone knows if it is possible to make syntactic searches in BW 5.

    The kind of searches I'd like to make pertain to word-order in biblical Hebrew. An example would be something like: 'sentences with a finite verb where the object occurs before the subject with a resumptive pronoun'

    I can't see how this can be done in the morphology assistant. are there even any tags to subjects and objects?

    Any takers on how to do that?

    Jonah, syntax searches are not possible as such in BibleWorks because it does not have a tagged Syntax version. It operates with tagged morphological versions. For instance in Greek, you cannot search for a direct object, but you can search for words in the accusative case.
