Concordance for Gospel of John
Part of my New Year's Resolution involves reading my Greek NT every day during the week. I try to get 4 or 5 verses a day. One of the observations I have made this past month is that I will come to a word that will look familiar but I cannot remember what it means. However, if I can look back to where I first read in in John, then that old context brings to mind the meaning of the word. Unfortunately, I cannot always remember where I read the word before. What would be nice would be to have a print concordance just for the Gospel of John since I do my reading away from my computer.
I have searched the archives but I did not see any solutions that did not involve creating the concordance 1 word at a time.
So my question would be if the new version of BW has some feature that would allow you to make a concordance (I have BW7).
A variety of ways of creating a concordance
I just posted on ways to create a concordance here:
There is no easy way in BW, but you might try LaParola, a free program which appears to create what you want very quickly.
Using KWIC for words in context
I thought I would expand upon what Georg Adamsen said about using the KWIC module to find this type of information.
When you find a word that you can't remember, but want to see it in context elsewhere in the book, right-click on the word in the Browse Window text, then select either "Search on Form in KWIC" or "Lookup Lemma in KWIC", depending upon whether you want to see the exact form or all forms of the word.
The KWIC module opens and begins the search. Stop the search, then enter the name of the book in the Verse Range field. If you are searching on lemma, you will want to also select Options | Display Brother Text (in KWIC. Press Build, and now every occurence of the word in that book, in context, appears in the upper window.
Hope this helps.
