Well, our friend "Dyan" is at it again! This time Dyan (creator of the "TSKe" module) has taken several works by a gentleman named William Bonnell and combined them into two eSword modules: a .cmtx module and a .dctx module.
Rather than try to explain it myself, let me just give you the text from Dyan's email, which explains the tandem module:
- ...here's a new module for you. I got the text data from William Bonnell. The same fellow who's site I first got the raw text of the TSKe from. He's given me permission to produce a module from his work, with a copyright notice included. The module is called Bonnell's Combined Word Book, well, actually I've created 2 modules for it, a commentary and a dictionary, both with the same name. So, just what is Bonnell's Combined Word Book. Just to give you some background, the Bonnell’s Combined Word Book combines the First Occurrence Commentary, Bonnell’s Dictionary of 3 Word Phrases, and Bonnell’s Unique Word Book. All three works are from the same William Bonnell.
The following is quoted from Bonnell’s site, https://sites.google.com/site/wsbones/
"Bonnell's Dictionary of 3 Word Phrases - 5/19/2010 - is a dictionary of 3 word search phrases indexed on keyword. The keyword is the first, longest word in the phrase. These phrases were made by going through each word in the Bible (789,000+) and picking up the next two words to make a phrase. Then searching the Bible for that phrase and counting the occurrences, saving the phrase and its count in a list. This generated approximately 386000 unique phrases. Only those occurring more than once are used. This resulted in about 86,000 phrases categorized in a dictionary format. Many of these phrases make interesting searches and give surprising results. Click a phrase to perform the search. For each keyword the verse reference of the first occurrence in the Bible is also given.
"First Occurrence Commentary - 5/19/2010 - The law of first mention isn't really a law of Biblical Interpretation, but it often does give insight to the meaning of a word. This commentary lists all the words in a verse that appear for the 1st time in the Bible. When you hover the mouse over the Bible margin link for 1stC, it will pop up the list of 1st occurrence words.
"Bonnell's Combined Word Book - 5/19/2010 – combines the First Occurrence Commentary, Bonnell’s Dictionary of 3 Word Phrases, and Bonnell’s Unique Word Book into one book. BWCB is indexed by book of the Bible. Each entry contains a count of all the words occurring more than once in that book of the Bible, all three-word phrases in that book of the Bible, and all the unique words in that book of the Bible. At the top of each entry is a Bible reference to verse 1:1 so that a link will show up in the Bible margin on the first verse of every book."
So taking his text data, I've created the following 2 modules, Bonnell's Combined Word Book Commentary, and Bonnell's Combined Word Book Dictionary. Here's the details of the 2 modules:
Bonnell's Combined Word Book
Bonnell's Combined Word Book (BCW) is a unique and useful for study of The Bible. BCW Commentary, and Dictionary, should be should be used in conjunction with each other.
The BCW Commentary has:
8,409 verse entries of 1st occurrence of words,
37,498 entries of unique words, and
70,643 entries of 3 word phrases.
***Book Notes consist of a list of word counts for unique word and 3 word phrases, sorted alphabetically, for that book of the Bible.
***Verse Notes shows the 1st occurrence of a word(s), if any in a verse.
The BCW Dictionary has:
12,848 entries of 1st occurrence words,
6,569 entries of unique words, and
43,087 entries of 3 word phrases.
The Dictionary gives the reference of 1st occurrence words, word count by book for unique words, and word count by book of 3 word phrases.
These modules are unique; I've never seen anything quite like them. I'm sure they will be quite helpful for the study of our Lord's Book - The Bible. May the Lord bless us as we study His Word.
The module double download is available at http://www.DoctorDaveT.com. Through mid-January 2011, the module will be found at "What's New." Afterward, it will be moved to "Free eS/TW Modules / Bibles, Commentaries & Dictionaries."
