Hello, I was wondering if someone can explain to me how the concentration part of the word list is generated in the info pane for Accordance 12? Is it by frequency in Scripture, or is it relative to the word being a verb, noun, etc?

Its mark of how much the word is used locally vs. globally, like a local density. For words like 'the' that are used a lot locally, but also a lot globally, it will be near the bottom of the list, because it isn't 'concentrated' in that verse at all. But, if there is a word that is used a few times in the immediate context, but not much elsewhere in the entire text, it will be much higher on the list, because its usage is concentrated around that verse.
So, it doesn't have anything to do with verb or noun. It also isn't necessarily a scientific evaluation, but it can provide some fascinating insight for unique or focused vocabulary that the author is using.
