It is probably simple, but I just can't figure out how to count all the words in Romans and visually show the numbers of each word, so I can see e.g. which 10 words he uses at most in his letter?

Thanks for any kind of help.

You open a new Word List document, from the "Add" menu you choose your bible (such as NA27) and the range Romans. The result will automatically be sorted by count.

You're welcome Smile

In the meantime I checked an alternative solution, which is slightly more complex:

Do a morph search of all text in Romans in NA 27 for all available morphemes (?), i.e. for @B OR @C OR @D OR @I OR @J OR @N OR @P OR @R OR @T OR @V OR @X - display in Analysis view, group by Greek Lemma and collapse all verses: 

 

The numbers are the same, as far as I can see - and it will help you if you only want nouns, verbs, adjectives for you ten most-used words, since ho and kai won't make good sermons or term papers.
