Comparing search systems from Bible: Handmade compilation work versus computational search

Research output: Working paperScientific


The report discusses Traditionally, search systems were compiled manually by collecting useful examples of a given word. The compiled works included only part of the word occurrences, and the choice of examples was subject to many kind of factors, which easily distorted the result. The advanced computational search systems give comprehensive results. They are also reliable, if the system is tailored to the subject text and the mistakes in code removed. The report compares a manually compiled system with a computational system. Results are displayed with tables.
