I hate to point to features in other products but I'm curious if Accordance has any plans for something similar to Logos' verb river? If so, that would seem to be a very nice feature.

Peace,

Jeremy

Jeremy,

Funny you should mention it. I've just been playing with an alpha of Accordance 7.0 which features 4 completely new kinds of graphs and charts. I'm not at liberty at this point to describe them, but I can tell you two things:

1. They'll convey all the information you're asking for, plus a lot more.

2. They'll do it in a way which is much easier to understand.

More details will be forthcoming once we're ready to release version 7.
Sincerely,
David Lang

I'm not sure if anyone else is interested in this but I thought it was pretty neat so I'll go ahead and post it.

I have found that there is a very easy way to create a "verb mood chart" in the present version of Accordance.

For example, let's say that I want to compare the verb moods in Ephesians. Here is how.

1. If you don't already have a search range defined for Ephesians do so.
2. Select the Ephesians search range.
3. In the search box select your GNT-T and type "*@ [VERB indicative]"
4. Once you have the results, open the 'Details' box and open a new graph. Click 'Keep' to save the graph.
5. Go back to your search field and now search for all imperative verbs - "*@ [VERB imperative]"
6. Open the 'Details' box again and you should have a nice graph that shows the relationships between the indicative and imperative mood verbs in the book of Ephesians.

You may also use command-T (while viewing the graphe) to alter the 'words per hit' count for more detail.

This should work nicely until v7.

Peace,

Jeremy
