Hi,

 

I would like to be able to make a list of:

 

- All vocabulary in Ezekiel

- In descending order of frequency

- With alongside each entry the total number of occurrences of that word in the whole OT.

 

Is that possible?  If so, would really appreciate instructions as to how.

 

Many thanks!  Chris

Showing total occurrences of a word would be extremely helpful when creating word lists. I wish it were possible. 

 

However, that said, knowing a word is high frequency gives a great motivation for learning it, but then when you see a 1 next to too many words it can be a great demotivator—Anyone who has ever tried this for the book of Hebrews will know what I mean :D

To get a list of words in a book with its frequency in that book then you need the following command

 

* [Range Ezekiel]

 

Then do an analysis of the result (the little graph symbol and select the 'analysis' option). You can order by frequency. The result is shown below:

To get the same list with the frequency across the OT then you will need to select all the words in Ezekiel using a range then use the HITS command on a separate pane of the whole OT (If you do shift-cmd-h then it will ask you which pane to get your hits from and it will set up the HITS command for you). You can then do the analysis and order by frequency. Result shown below:

The issue is that these are separate panes so the order will not match because the frequency will be different in the two panes. You could copy into excel and do some work there to get the ordering the same but it might be a bit fiddley and I'm not sure how to handle the Hebrew. I managed to get a list in Excel that matched up on English gloss - but the frequency figures are not in a separate cell so you would have to do some work to separate them out if you wanted to sort by frequency in excel. There were also some english glosses that appeared in different columns but these were quite easy to move to the same column as the rest with a bit of sorting then select and drag. 

 

The result was (as you can see the Hebrew did not copy across properly but others may be able to help with that):

Thanks Fabian. It is because I did not have the copy as unicode preference set. That solved the problem. Should have realised :wacko:

Greetings. I have Accordance for Windows 10.4.5 and I am trying to get a word frequency list in Hebrew for Jeremiah. 

 

I have used the [RANGE jeremiah] * command, but clicking on the graph symbol leads to a menu in which Frequency, Word Count Totals and Book/Chapter Stats are all greyed out and unavailable. I looked at the screen shots above by Steve King, but cannot seem to achieve the same results. I also searched for "word frequency" in Accordance's online help and could not seem to find an answer. 

 

Can anybody give me a tip about what I might be missing here?

You will only get a list of words in the Analysis tab of the Analytics. That list can be sorted several ways in Get Analysis Display.
