Hello, I am trying to construct a command line search or ASE query to find sections of scripture in the Greek New Testament that contain a high number of dative nouns. If we define a section of scripture to be ten verses, is there a way to construct a query that finds which sections contain the highest number of dative nouns?

Any help would be welcomed. Many thanks in advance!!

You can find a reasonable approximation by using the following command line search using a morphological version:

.*@nd*

Run the search, then using the Detailed Statistics tool to see how many hits per chapter. If you sort the chart by frequency, you see that Acts 7 tops the list with 58 dative nouns, followed by Luke 1 (55) and 1 Cor 14 (46).

This isn't a 10 verse group, but it may help.
