Hi,

 

What I am trying to do is to list number of Hebrew words in each verse in Isaiah. Is there any way to do it in Accordance? For example, Isa 1:1, 16 words; 1:2, 13 words, etc.

 

Thanks in advance!

No, I am sorry, but this has not been requested as a feature of Accordance. You can get a word count per chapter and a verse count per chapter (by searching for * and opening the Table in the Analytics menu) but there is no way to get an automated word count per verse.

OK, you've got me curious.

 

What would one do with a word count by verse in Isaiah?

Well. I am working on a research paper to compare the Great Isaiah Scroll with the Masoretic Text. Part of the research has to do with detailed analysis of the variant readings between the two manuscripts. We would like to have a word count (by verse) and the percentage of variants in Masoretic Text.

That's a very cool project!

 

I'd be interested in reading your paper when it is completed.
