Helen, et al.,

I would love to see a tutorial, or suggestions from other users on how they make the most out of the highlighting feature. A friend of mine is taking a course on Libronix and has discovered that things can really "pop" in the text when different verb tenses are highlighted, etc. I would love to be able to highlight all the imperatives in a passage, for example, and I'm pretty sure this can be done in Accordance, but I'm not at all sure how....


Thanks for all your work, Helen!

Daniel:

I moved your post into a new topic as it really has nothing to do with the topic you added it to.

A recent feature added to Highlighting in version 7 is the ability to highlight all hits. So, all you need to do is create a highlight style for, say, the Perfect tense. Then search the text for Perfect verbs and shift-click the style on the highlight palette to apply that style to your hits. This may take a while if you have a large number of hits. Then you can do the same for the next tense. This is probably best applied to a small book or a single chapter.

The highlighting can be hidden if you want, can be searched, and can now be printed. You can also now have multiple sets of highlighting, so you can create one set for, say, grammatical highlights, and another with another set of styles and meanings.

Clever idea. That would have never occurred to me. Good job.

I used the "highlight all hits" feature to quickly set up highlights for: hapax legomena (words occuring only once in the original text), intensives (Infintive abs+finite verb of same root in Hebrew), and cognate accusatives (A Greek construction). If I remember correctly, David Lang did a blog entry on how to do the congate accusatives search and highlighting.

I also have highlighting styles I use "manually", for word/root repetition (several different colors of these so I can highlight different repeated words in a pericipe) and Inclusios. (identical or similar phrases that mark the beginning and end of a section)

Hello, all! If anyone is still interested in this kind of thing (highlighting various parts of speech, verb tenses, etc.) I've submitted my highlight file including highlights for LXX1, LXX2, BHS-W4 and GNT-T to the Accordance Exchange. I'll post a link here when/if it's approved and posted on that site.

All right. It's been posted on the Exchange. Here's my description:

This is a set of highlights to identify significant parts of speech
in the original languages. Calvin Theological Seminary does a similar thing with
Libronix, but this is my own invention. It should have highlights built in for
the BHS-W4, LXX1, LXX2 and GNT-T. Those are the only original language modules I
have, so you'd have to do others yourself--just search for the appropriate part
of speech and apply the appropriate highlight style to the hits. It can be very
useful for getting a quick overview of any "irregularities" in verb usage, of
imperatives, or just about anything that you want to have stand out at "first
glance". Enjoy!
