I don't know what the current status of Young's Concordance is, but when I was in seminary the advantage I found with Young's over Strong's was that Young's took an English Word (like from the KJV) and listed the occurrences by Greek word that the English represented (whereas Stong's seemed to be more perfect in getting every last occurrences, Young's seemed to a few accidental omissions).  


Young's also had an appendix where original language words were listed with the English translations used.


Thus if you searched "house," you would get all the Hebrew words that house represented in translation, with each Hebrew, Aramaic, & Greek word listed, and under each original language word you got the occurrences where house translated each original language word.


Is there some way to get Young-ish results for an Accordance search?

The usual way to get this information is to search a Key Number text by word or Key Number, then use the Analysis Pane (It's under Analytics.) to see the results. Use the flex search to search by word, which will give oyu all the Greek and Hebrew words trasnlated into that word. Search by Key Number to see all the ways that Greek or Hebrew word is translated.


Accordance is actually much more powerful than Youngs, as it can be used with any translation that is tagged with Key Numbers. One had to buy a separate edition of Youngs for each different translation!

You probably could say that what we can do with Accordance what probably Strong and Young and others only dreamt about and wish they could do.
