I need to find all of the Qal infinitives in the book of Esther. As yet I have not
succeeded to do that.

Who can help me?

Thank you,

From the command line:

1. Type: l est (that is a lower case 'L' - this sets your search limits to Esther)

2. Type: wtm (this sets your search version to Hebrew Morphology)

3. Type: .*@vq{ca}* (This seaches for all qal infinitives. v = verb, q = qal, c=infinitive construct, a=infinitive absolute, the * before @ stands for any lemma)

You now have all the qal infinitives in Esther.

Thank you Joe. I have it. I have not read in the manual for quite awhile and have been busy in other programs other than BW6. This BW6 is truly an amazing Bible software. It is like I am "seeing it" for the first time. I am now reading how to copy the results to Word (the full texts).
