    Default Qatal - Yiqtol

    How can someone find in BibleWorks if a verb is in Qatal, Yiqtol...WaYiqtol, WeQatal...Wayyomer?
    I have BibleWorks 9

    Thank you

    This is really easy, but you need to know that BW uses different vocabulary (which reflects diversity in vocabulary used in teaching Hebrew and writing grammars). If you hover your cursor over the Hebrew verb concerned you'll get a pop-up window with the parsing. BW describes these as follows:

    Qatal = Perfect
    Yiqtol = Imperfect
    Wayyiqtol = Waw Consecutive Imperfect
    Weqatal = Waw Consecutive Perfect

    "Consecutive" is abbreviated "consec".
