Making a Concordance

Top  Previous  Next

When you press the Concord button in the main Controller, a new Concord Tool opens up and will be visible in the Windows Taskbar. 




Now in Concord itself, choose File | New.        



If no text files have been chosen, you are asked to choose some. Press the Choose Texts Now button.         




Once the texts have been chosen, enter a suitable Search Word




Here I have chosen wherefore as my search-word. Then press Go Now.         




The concordance lists all the examples of "wherefore" which had a word-separator such as punctuation, space etc. before and after it.         

Since we have now done our concordance, WordSmith now knows how many words there are in each text file: rom06.txt has 1,506 altogether; rom8.txt is bigger (2,236 words).
