Logos 5: Locate All Forms of an English Word

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

A Logos user recently asked this question:

I’m studying the subject of heaven throughout Scripture.  Is there a way to find all occurrences of “heaven” and its variants (“heavens,” etc.) without having to search for each individually?

Actually, there are several ways to locate a “family” of words in one search. Perhaps the easiest is what’s called a Match all word forms search.

Here’s how to set up it up:

  • Click the search icon.
  • Select Bible as the search type (A).
  • Select a Bible, such as the English Standard Version, from the resources dropdown list (B).
  • Select a range, such as the New Testament, from the verse dropdown list (C).
  • Type a word—here, heaven—in the find box (D). 

1-set-up-search

  • Choose the search panel menu (E).
  • Select Match all word forms (F).
  • Press enter to generate the search.

2-match-all-word-forms

  • Notice that the results include “heaven,” “heavens,” and “heavenly”all in one search! (G)
