Hello,
I'm attempting some searches in BHS for a class I'm teaching. Basically, I'd like to create something like a Reader's Lexicon for Amos...but a Reader's Lexicon that adapts to what I've already learned.

In the first window, I type [COUNT 1-100] [RANGE Amos 1]. Perfect...it gives me all the words I'm wanting.

However, now I want to know all of the words that occur 1-100 times in Amos 2, but I want it to exclude all the words that showed up from Amos 1. Basically, I'm trying to eliminate repeat vocabulary words so that each new search only returns words not yet encountered in Amos.

I've tried variations on the Count, Range, Link and Hits commands...but no luck. Anyone have an idea how this might work...or if it is even possible?

Thanks in advance!
~ Jon

I suppose that the words are not going to be so many. so maybe it'll be easier to cancel them just manually :)

Tab 1:  [COUNT -100] [RANGE Amos 1]

Tab 2: [COUNT -100] [RANGE Amos 2]

Tab 3: [HITS Tab 1]@-[HITS Tab 2] [RANGE Amos 2]

 

This should get you what you are looking for!

I think what you want to do requires three tabs.  

  1. In the first do the count search of Amos 1.  
  2. In the second do the same count search for Amos 2.  
  3. Then in the third tab, use the following command with the range set to Amos 2:.  

‎[HITS Tab1]‏ -@‎[HITS Tab 2]

I believe this will return what you're looking for in Amos 2.

Wonderful! This is perfect. As I go along in Amos, then, I can just adjust Tab1 to include something like Amos 1-3 and Tab2 to Amos 4, then set the Range for Tab3 to Amos 4. Exactly what I was looking for.

Appreciate the help!
