View Full Version : A foot in two worlds

Alas I use BW8 all the time, but still have not mastered search. The other day I wanted every example of a Hebrew noun as a direct object of a verb. I fiddled with BW8 for a while then took out and dusted off my old copy of Lisowsky's Konkordanz where he lists words as subj. and as object. I found it in a couple minutes. Yes, I know the problem is not BW8 but mine. I am one of those guys who will buy a $40,000 car and never read the drivers manual.

In this case, it wasn't just your use of the program. You would need to be making use of a database which tags syntactic function. Alas, there is no such database for BH in BW.

Any such databases in the works?

Don't know about BW. But Logos has the Andersen-Forbes database and SESB has the WIVU database.

Thanks. SESB is the 'Stuttgart Electronic Study Bible,' am I correct? And, if I am not mistaken, I believe that is also only available (at a hefty cost, I might add) through Logos, correct?

The answer is yes to both of your questions.

Thanks for your answer. Just got back from vacation, which explains the lag between our responses. If I might ask you this one followup, is the SESB a worthwhile investment given its hefty price tag? Grateful for your feedback.
