Which (if there are) options do I pick to highlight "negative" and "positive" words in the Visual Filters tool?

 

e.g. bad vs. good, sad vs. happy etc...

 

Thank you.

Douglas, there's no morphology rule that will tell you whether a word is "negative" or "positive" (and in some cases, the negativity or positivity is a very subjective thing: negativity can be in the eye of the beholder -- or it might depend on context). The best you could do would be to make up a list of biblical words that you think of as negative and another list of words you think of as positive and create a visual filter that highlights all the words in the first list with one color and all the words in the second list with another color. Here's how you'd do it:

If you run out of room in either of the boxes for your list of words OR'ed together, you could start another box with the continuation, and have as many such boxes as you need to include your whole list of words.

For the NT you can use Louw-Nida (LN) domains:-

Happy, etc     <LN 25.116-134>

Offend (Anger), etc.  <LN 25.179-185>
