Search for Hebrew vowel points, cantillation marks and patterns
Please allow searching on Hebrew vowel points, cantillation marks, and patterns/combinations of these using wildcards.
Just like "@" brings up the Morphology selection "dialogue", I suggest that typing "#" or "^" would bring up a "Nikkud" grid where te'amim & vowels would occupy the "Part of Speech" field.
The vowels could be categorized according to length/family, while the te'amim would be divided by conjunctive and 4 levels of disjunctive force.
This dialogue should be available in either Basic, Bible, or Morph searching. Combining Morph and Nikkud searches would be an AWESOME capability!
I'm interested in this because I'm curious if the marks can indicate differences in meaning. For example, if a word translated as "was" might be better translated as "became."
The cantillation search works reasonably well now, but nothing has been done with vowel pattern searching.
Anything new ?

I wish I could put all 10 of my votes here!!!!
I believe if this were implemented it would also support search accents etc. in Greek, so this is not only for Hebrew fans, but for ALL who wish to work with the Original Languages!
