I know that the Word Study report will give me the number of instances (on a case by case basis) of a Greek word in Philo or Josephus or LXX, etc., but is there a way to get comprehensive data on each of these resources. For intance, total number of words in each resource, frequency lists of all lemmas. This would be marvelous for prioritizing further vocabulary acquisition for non-canonical koine reading.

Anyone know a way to get this information easily?

In case anyone is interested, I've gotten total word count information on all Greek resources but the OT Pseudepigrapha by using the Greek Morphology tool to search all parts of speech. Not the most elegant way to go about things, I suppose. My problem with the Pseudepigrapha is the passage range seems to limit me to canonical books (but, of course, this isn't the case for Philo or Josephus or the Apostolic Fathers, so I'm not sure why the difference).

In any case, I have part of what I was looking for. I'll keep at it.

So now you are aware that you cannot get it "easily"!

Any chance of sharing those lists? I know I'm interested!

Unfortunately, life has moved on, and I have not really been able to do much with this project. Sorry.

In the new beta there is a datasheet view. This sounds like the perfect use for it. I thought I remembered reading that they will make it available in all the search types, but I could be wrong on that one.

Ah, yes. I can at least share what my number crunching came up with before.
