The interesting words in Greek in the Passage Guide might be more statistically meaningful if they were based on the lemmas. At least I would like to see an option for this. The English words are grouped by stems, which is somewhat similar. As it is, the largest words in the graphic are quite different for Greek than English. Sometimes the biggest word in English is very small in Greek, even though the number of occurrences is the same.

I've submitted your suggestion.

Update:  This will be implemented in 4.0d Beta 1.
