    Default search for homonym on the Hebrew word 'soap' in Mal 3:20

    Hello,

    I did a search for homonym on בֹרִית ('soap') in Mal 3:20. But it shows the occurrence of בְּרִית ('covenant') as well.

    and in the Analysis window, it shows "noun common feminine singular absolute" for בֹרִית ('soap'), and "noun common feminine singular absolute" for בְּרִית ('covenant').
    There is no expected "homonym 1" or "homonym 2".

    I search for lemma in Accordance on בֹרִית ('soap'), and it returns only two occurrence, which means Accordance does distinguish בֹרִית ('soap') from בְּרִית ('covenant').

    I wonder why...

    And, it seems BW and Acc. use different terms for the same thing. what BW calls 'homonym', Acc seems to call it 'lemma'. Am I right?
