    Default Hebrew: same consonants and different vowels: how to distinguish in the count?

    Hello, when I take in Genesis 1:3 the hebrew word wajomèr (and .... said) and in Jonah 4:2 the same word with the same consonants and different vowels; together I get 2084 occurrences. But is there a possibility to know how many words of one vowel type there are in this count and how many of the other vowel type? Thank you very much for your help. Edmond

    Edmond,

    Perhaps I'm misunderstanding, but based on my understanding of your question, all you would have to do is enable vowel point sensitive searching. Right click in the command line and check "Vowel Point Sensitive Searching (Hebrew)." Then do separate searches on the verb, one with pathach and the other with seghol.
