Hi there,

I`m trying to create a search that returns any verb which is found in Genesis 1 (or another chapter specified) and the Outputversion for the verbs should be WTT.

The verbs should be copied into a wordlist.

Has anyone any suggestion how i could do this? :confused:

Thank you & God bless you

Michi

P.s.: I`m using Bibleworks 6.0

Michi,

Here are the steps:

1. Change your "Search Version" to WTM.
2. Set your search limits to Gen 1. (Hint, you can just type "limits gen 1" on the command line and hit Enter, no quotes of course. Type "limits" by itself and hit Enter to remove any search limits.).
3.Enter the following on the command line (the initial period is essential):
.*@v*

4. Hit Enter to see the list of verses with all verbs highlighted in both the WTT and the WTM. To get a list of all the WTT verb forms continue...
5. Click Tools>Word List Manager and then click "Load or Generate Word List."
6. Change the version at the top to WTT.
7. Choose "Load highlighted words from last query."
8. You can leave the "Verse Range Limits" alone since you already limited the search to Gen 1.
9. Remove the check from the box labeled "Keep morph codes" and then click Create List.

That's it. You now have a list of all verb forms that appear in Genesis 1.

I would recommend taking a look at the attached BibleWorks 6 tutorial to better understand morphology versions and how to use them.

Thanks a lot Charlie,

Your request brought me one step further!

Now I have a list with all Verbs in the text, but I need a list the verbs appears in the order they appear in the text. And I don`t need them summed up but each one single in the list...

I would be very glad if you have further suggestions :)

Michi

P.s.: Thanks a lot for the tutorial - I`ll read it.

Michi,

Mmm...that's tricky if you only want the verb and nothing else.

All I can think of doing is export every WTT verse along with the highlighting (make sure you have your Format Options in the Tools>Copy Center set to include colors). Then have Word do a search and destroy on all text that isn't highlighted. I just did that for Gen 1 and this is the list I get. All verbs in Gen 1 in the order they appear:

What's the exact option you do to search and destroy all words that aren't Highighted in Word?

Thank you very much Charlie!

It`s a great Idea!

Michi

@Michael Hanel:

I think you can use the MS-Word (2003 & 2007 Beta [i don`t know if that works in other versions]) search and work with the format options.

I`ll try to explain, but I run my Office in German so I don`t know the correct english naming of the Buttons:

Open your search Dialog [Crtl + F]

First click on the <Format> Dialog

Choose <Highlighted> [Or somthing similar: as mentioned I don`t know the correct names]

Then activate the checkbox underneath the Textbox (where you type in the searchword [in your case none]) it should say something like "Mark found elements in:"

In the Optionsdialog you choose "Main document"

And last click on the <Search all> Button

Now every highlighted Word should be marked an you can copy them wherever you want...

I have Word 2000 which doesn't have the cool feature Michi mentions above so I actually did this:
I couldn't get Word to find all "non highlighted" words so I first changed the font of all "highlighted" words to something unique like "Verdana." Then I just used the Find/Replace option in word to find all bwhebb text and replace it with a Paragraph Mark ^p.

Then to get rid of all the blank lines I did Find/Replace again replacing all double Paragraph Marks ^p^p with a single Paragraph Mark ^p. If you want the verse numbers gone you can do a Find/Replace on them too.

Then of course I have to change the font back to bwhebb.

I know this sounds a bit querky but it works.

Glenn pointed out to me that for those of you who have BibleWorks 7 you can generate the list of verbs in Gen 1 (in a slightly different format) using the new KWIC tool. Here are the instructions thanks to Glenn:

Open the KWIK module.
Under the menu item Options uncheck Cross verses, and check Display Brother
Text (in KWIC).
Select WTM as the Version.
Set the verse range desired, in this case Gen 1.
In the Word box enter "*@v*".
In the Left and Right boxes enter "0".
In the Codes box enter "2".
Click the Build button. (See screenshot below)
The results in the upper window (the KWIC window) will only list the verbs.
There will also be some blank lines, since setting the Left and Right boxes
to "0" means that prefixes and suffixes will not display. That is o.k.--the
copy function will copy the proper results anyway, even though they do not
display in the KWIC window.
On the menu select Copy, and choose Copy Entire KWIC List to Clipboard
(formatted).
Paste the clipboard contents into the editor or word processor, and all the
verbs are listed in order.
