Hello all!

This might not be related to Logos directly.

Does any one know where I can get a Hebrew vocabulary list (by frequency) that goes below 10 times? As many of you know that Van Pelt has a book with a list of Hebrew words, but only words that occur 10 or more times, but I want to find less than 10 times.

Trenchard has a list of all the Greek words, but is there one a complete one (beside a Lexicon) for Hebrew.

Peace, Jack!        *smile*             This is a book, but not a list; however you can make a list from the book using Logos.

             Actually, this book is in all (or, at least almost all) the base packages; and you probably have it.  If I haven't completely understood your needs, please get back to us; and we'll give you a better answer!                  *smile*

Building Your Biblical Hebrew Vocabulary

by George M. Landes

Society of Biblical Literature 2004

Building Your Biblical Hebrew Vocabulary

Overview

First published over thirty years ago under the title A Student's Vocabulary of Biblical Hebrew, this classic work has been completely revised, updated, and expanded by the author to assist a new generation of students in developing a basic Biblical Hebrew vocabulary. Designed with beginning Hebrew readers in mind, this valuable teaching tool shows which words occur most frequently in the Hebrew Bible and, where possible, arranges those words into meaningful groups according to their roots and cognates. Vocabularies have been kept to a manageable size, extensive cross-references document when words appear frequently with different meanings, and an index allows rapid location of every word encountered.

Careful study of this volume will be richly rewarded as students:

• quickly learn the most commonly occurring words in the Hebrew Bible,

• naturally expand their working vocabulary of related words, and

• consistently observe how Hebrew characteristically builds upon verbal roots

As a result, students who master this volume will remember words more easily, consult a lexicon less frequently but more intelligently, and translate the Hebrew Bible at sight more readily and enjoyably.

Praise for the Print Edition

I warmly welcome the appearance of this thoroughly revised and much improved edition of a standard vocabulary list by one of the master teachers of Biblical Hebrew. It is thoughtfully organized and much more user-friendly than the previous edition from three decades ago. An additional bonus is a brief outline of Hebrew grammar, with some helpful tips by the author on learning Hebrew vocabulary. Every teacher of Biblical Hebrew will be grateful to Landes for this new edition and will want to recommend this valuable resource to students.

   - Choon-Leong Seow, Princeton Theological Seminary

[This] work is an excellent resource for the student endeavoring to learn Hebrew and for the teacher instructing such students. For the student who wishes to work specifically on Hebrew (over Aramaic) vocabulary, no better handbook exists in print.

   - Albert L. Lukaszewski, St. Mary's College

More information on this resource and others like it can be found in the Product Guide for Hebrew Texts and Tools

 

EDIT:           Hi Jack!           Just read your post again and I think I didn't understand you correctly.    Sorry!            I've decided not to delete my post anyway just in case it might be helpful in some small way.!             *smile*

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........

Hello,

I already have that book, but as you know it doesn't cover all the vocabulary in the text...

Does any one else have a suggestion?

I can generate one for you in about 5 seconds in Bibleworks... Do you want the lexical forms or as they appear in the text? Ordered alphabetically or by frequency?

Lexical form please!!

For Hebrew words that appear less than 10 times.

Thank you so much!! I did not know that Bibleworks can do it that fast. Too bad Logos can't do this :(

Also, order by frequency please!

Didn't spend a lot of time on the formatting, but it should do the trick.

Hello again,

If it's not too much trouble. Would it be possible for you to put the definition on them as well? If it's too much trouble don't worry about it.

Thanks!

Jack

It can do that too, but I'm away from my iMac for 6 months, running BW on Wine on a 2-yr old Macbook Air. Generating the wordlist is easy, but then attaching 6095 definitions from  Holladay and exporting it as a lexicon seems to be crashing Wine somehow. Sorry.
