At least for one more count.

Oh come on, we've already been through all the counts and earls and things. I can't think of any more. Oh, how about Count Dracula? Or Count Chocula? Or Count Pointercount? Or Count Down? Or Bank A. Count? Or Count R. Intuitive?

If I deleted my last post, would that be one less count?

Don't countradict me. I wasn't trying to be exhaustive. We've got the NAS Exhaustive Concordance and the Exhaustive Dictionary of Biblical Names for that. Besides, I'm already exhausted. But if you really want me to countinue, there's Count N. Ance, Count Ree, and good old מָנָה.

I don't mind them taxing the waiters/waitresses, but they are taxing my patience too. Sad

Not to mention Heart A Tax; Dallax, Taxes, Tax A Dermy, or Ar Tax Xerxes

No, Alex.

That is a dis-count.

No doubt, your example of a NO-ac-count.

Just wondering Rosie, how often you use your count-cordance....

The trouble a lot of people were having with L4 that was caused by the date made me realize . . .

today's date is a PALINDROME (I learned that on this thread)!

I don't know. I've lost count. Actually, I think it's pretty silly to have a concordance resource in Logos when Logos search can generate any concordance you need on the fly. This this explanation from the Logos blog of why there is no Strong's Exhaustive Concordance in Logos. So why should there be a NAS Exhaustive Concordance?

Ah, that must be the problem! Some programmer forgot that when the date is a Palin-drome, the software will just quit on you. ;-)  (Had to get a little political jab in there.)

Hi Rosie,

Although I can't speak for academia, since I'm not an academic, I can observe that a published concordance can be checked... others can verify its accuracy. Scholastically, unless such a work (Strong's, NASB's Exhaustive, etc.) exists to compare Logos against, how can we certify its accuracy sufficiently for academia?

To my knowledge, your question represents the 1st time since 1994 that ANYONE has expressed that level of confidence in the e-results we could get on Logos. Too often in the past, Logos results were questioned because they didn't find some instance or other of a particular word that appeared in (you name the) concordance.

But, to keep more in the spirit of recent posts in this thread, who's COUNT-ing, anyway?

Grace & Peace,
Bill

You are in error there since I personally questioned the need for a concordance in Logos (probably) within the last 2 yrs.

Thanks for the correction, George.... Your question is still rather recent... only within the last 2 years... Logos has come a long way from 1.6 & 2.0, & even early 3.0.

Blessings!

Wink Were you speaking for academia?

Too often in the past, Logos results were questioned because they didn't find some instance or other of a particular word that appeared in (you name the) concordance.

I wasn't saying we need to eradicate print-based concordances. Of course it's still valid to want to check the results in Logos against a print-based concordance, and one always can if one is worried. But...you'd better believe a lot of those print-based concordances are generated by computers these days... ;-)  And a lot of the monks and scribes that made concordances manually in the olden days were error-prone, too. Besides, if Logos has produced a print-based concordance like the NAS Exhaustive in Logos format, but you don't trust Logos programmers entirely (and I don't either -- I am a programmer and I know how fallible we are), then who's to say they didn't accidentally delete some of the instances of a word from the print-based version when tagging it for Logos format? So can we really trust Logos's version of the NAS Exhaustive as a resource to check Logos's own search results against? I think not.

This is getting too serious, though. I just wanted to come up with a counterexample to tweak your nose a bit. You're down for the count. ;-)

No, simply for mia.  Akkad can speak for itself (if you can read cunieform).
