I would like to find rare words in the NT. Is there any way of searching in Logos for Greek words that occur, say, 8 times in the NT. I'm looking for words that occur less than 10 times

Concordance can do this easily:

You can also do this with a word list. I built one for you with all lemmas in the SBLGNT that occur 10x or less: https://fl.vu/z9X4D

See also the discussion in this thread.

Thanks so much. Phil, how did you generate the word list document?

It's quite onerous, but you have to build a Word List for the whole of the SBLGNT i.e. Mt-Rev.

Click the Count column to sort in descending order (high to low).

Click the first entry and scroll down until the Count becomes 10. Shift-click the entry above that, then press the Delete key.

  • alternatively, you can select & delete smaller chunks at a time.

I did what Dave described.

You can find and create a new word list in the Docs panel/menu under the New menu.
