    Default How to search a plural noun in Greek text

    Dear BW users:

    I use BW9 and want to search verses with plural forms of Greek "aion" in BNM or BGT. I've read the Help Contents but couldn't find a way to do this. I can type Greek letters. Could you tell me how to do the search?

    Hi Nicanor,

    first, choose the version with morphology, so either BNM or BGM (and not BNT or BGT).

    Then, type into command line "." (dot) to enable searching on words.

    Then type in "aiwn" and then "@" sign (for example by pressing "Alt+64").

    Morphological search help should appear. Choose "noun", then "?" (for any noun case), then "masculine", then "plural" and then "*" (this stands for all the rest). The whole thing should be ".aiwn@n?mp*" (with greek letters instead of "aiwn"). Press "enter" and you have it

    Dear Rokas,

    Thank you for assistance. I followed your advice but it still failed. Then I found where the problem was --- I didn't switch off the Greek Accent-Sensitive Searching.
