    Default Searching by root

    Is there a way to search by the root rather than the morphology? For example, if I would like to find every occurrence of the verb natan (to give) followed by a verb, how would I do that? Do I have to search for **t** and filter through everything?
    Best,

    You will need to set you search version to WTM, this will ensure you are searching not only the text, but the morphologically tagged text.

    On the command line type:

    .*@v* ntn

    Of course, since this is hebrew you will actually type it '.ntn *v@*' and the final nu will look correct on the command line.

    This will find all occurances of natan regardless of its form when it is followed by any verb within the same verse.
