Is there a way to use Bibleworks to construct a list of all words found in a German Bible version arranged in order of frequency?

Similar to my last question; is there a wildcard character for searches of the German versions? The * doesn't seem to work with them.

The same day I posted my question I just saw Emalott's reply to a similar question about making a frequency list for the Didache. I followed the exact same procedure using the Word List Manager for the Luther Bibel. And it worked perfectly. It would be even better if I couldmake the same list for just the lexical forms of the German words. But I'm quite sure that's impossible since the German text is not tagged.
At any rate, this will give me a good way to prioritize words that I need to add to my German vocabulary for theological reading.
