Re: searching for Colwell [and more]

The message about the inability of the current crop of Bible software
to recognize syntactical connections between words is right on the
money. An additional factor for Tom Logan to be aware of is the fact
that the boolean operators (such as "beforeword") in Logos do not
function properly the last I knew. Also, I don't think Logos gives you
any way to EXCLUDE a word within a certain range. So Logos's ability
to search for grammatical constructions is extremely limited. I'm
going to post a separate item on a idea for developing a more powerful
tool for grammatical searches than is currently available.

To All

I have been trying Colwell type searches (anarthrous noun copulative
verb arthrous noun) using logos. I am getting some strange results.
anyone tried this? What did you use as a search argument? Were all
hits valid or are some invalid hits normal? Has anyone tried this
search or Granville Sharp type searches on other software i.e.
bibleworks or gramcord.
