Someone showed me once how to get accordance to look at a passage and create a list of the words it contained ranked by the number of occurrences. I would especially like to use this feature now that I have a Hebrew bible. Does anyone know 1) how to do it and 2) how the results work with various conjugations of Hebrew words.

First define a range in the Bible and search it for * (all words).

Then click Details and select Analysis.

Then go to Set Analysis Display (Display menu) and either choose to Count Down to rank by number of occurrences, or drag items into the first column to sort by the different attributes of the word. The latter does require the tagged text, not a plain text). However, you cannot do both at once. If you subsort the words, they must be ordered alphabetically.
