I am trying to get a list of nouns spoken by Christ as recorded in the gospels, to get an idea of what he spoke most about. I can do single searches for english words (Life, Kingdom, Give etc). I can do a search for all nouns in a gospel, but I can't seem to limit it to the words of Christ, even though there is an option with the Morphological Search to select this field.

Is this because the Logos Greek Morphology is not tagged for the Words of Christ? and if so, would it be best then if this option was removed from the Morphological search. Or, is there something I might be doing wrong? or another way to get this information?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Hm, but the reveres-interlineared English bibles would need to have words of christ tagged as such and the morph info that gives you nouns.

Otherwise I'd be going for a list of all words of christ with (count info) and another of all nouns in the NT and then eliminate all words from list 1 which are not in list two.

Don't have the time to explore these ideas in Logos right now, though

Thanks NB.Mick. That is helpful and has giving me food for thought to try some experimenting.

One option is searching a passage list for the Words of Christ for Nouns:

Thread => Syntax search question has a couple ways for creating a passage list for the Words of Christ.

By the way, am working on a visual filter to highlight many items, especially ones with right click for Biblical People, Places, and Things.

Thanks KS4J.

This has worked great. I've not really used passage lists before but this has worked great. OK, it's not perfect but works fine for what I am after.
