Generating vocab lists
Posted 12 December 2008 - 01:13 PM
I'm wondering if it is possible to get accordance to output a list of all the words that occur less than a certain number of times within a particular passage/book. It seems that I can only get output in terms of verses, but not in terms of individual words. I also don't know how to compose a search that runs a query in terms of occurrences.

See this thread for a discussion of the different uses of the Count command to generate the type of list you're looking for. You can generate a list of either the lemmas that fall within the specified frequency range or a list of the different inflected forms that fall within the specified range.

Thanks for the pointer, I think I've sort it out now.

Accord search for all words in a specified range that occur only a given number of times in the entire NT:
[range Mark] <AND> [count 1]
You can adjust the range name and the count number as needed.

The command [RANGE Romans] <AND> [COUNT 1-2] will give a list of 215 words, every word that occurs only once or twice in the entire NT that also occurs in the book of Romans.
The command [COUNT 1-2] with the range set to Romans (in the More options section below the search definition pane) will give a list of 875 words that occur only once or twice in the book of Romans, though it will be apparent that many of these (such as the first hit Pauvlo▀) occur elsewhere in the NT.
Here is a suggestion for making a personalized vocabulary list. I set up a file in User Notes and named it Vocabulary. As I read in GNT, whenever I have to use the Instant Details window to identify a word, I triple click that word to look it up in UBS Lexicon. I press command-A to select the word and its glosses, command-C to copy, then go back to the GNT tab where the text is that I am reading. I place my cursor in the verse in which the word appears and press command-U (edit User Note) and paste in the unfamiliar word with its gloss. Later, after I am done reading, I open a new User Notes tab (File>New>User Notes) and enter the chapter or book name in the search pane and there is my own personalized vocabulary list for that chapter or book. I copy and paste it into Pages and print it for review.
