1. I'm sure this has been answered before, but is there a master list of command line shortcuts (e.g. l = limit)?

2. How do I perform a search to find if any lexical word is repeated in a passage without indicating which word I'd like to search for?

3. Is there a way to quickly display the various lexical results of a search? For example, if I search for "bara" (create) in Hebrew, could I also display that there are X number of hiphils (with A number of perfects, B number of imperfects, etc..), Y number of niphals, and so on?

There's at least a couple of threads where this question has been addressed. In the forums you can use the search feature to try to find answers to questions that have already been asked. I searched on "command line shortcuts" and at least got one of those threads, but like i said i know there are others (which more or less contain the same info I believe). Maybe one of the BW staff can sticky a thread that has these shortcuts so they are always available to users...

Oh the link from my search was this http://www.bibleworks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=162&highlight=command+line+shortcuts

Thanks a bunch. I saved the link to a word document. One down and two more to go.

Hi Jake,

I don't know of any particular "search" that will yield this feature, but I do know that you can compile a word list in a morphological version. That will give you a list of all words with their "frequencies" (i.e., number of occurences in the passage). You can then delete the words you don't want, save the remaining words into an "inclusion list" and then make an advanced search engine query limited to your passage. This will then highlight the words that repeat.

I hope this at least helps you move in the right direction.

The following search finds consecutive repeated words (though I'm not sure why this search only them consecutively. I don't think it should.)

.#1 #1

If you import that into the ASE and play around with it, you can find what you're looking for, though you have to create an exclusion list. Otherwise you pull up just about every verse, since w or -h or rma or some other basic thing repeats in just about every verse. I put together a basic one here (http://home.uchicago.edu/%7Espackman/repeats.qf). Right click and "save as".
