Hey all - question for you Logos experts.  How do you find the Hebrew and Greek words translated as the noun "love" in the Bible and the relative frequency of each in the LXX/AFAT/NA27,28?

I thought it could be useful material for a sermon on the topic.  Thank you!

One approach is to make use of having English glosses associated with the original language text. Searching for the word "love" will find it in the gloss and then, in Analysis view, you can see which original language terms are used. AFAT doesn't have these glosses so I suggest using LHB instead. You get something like this:
