> Oh!
> Hello Trevor!
> Nice to see you again!

I'm still off work (for those new to the list I have post viral fatigue).
I've been following the discussions here. But the good news is I seem to be
getting better. The bad news is that my lap top crashed---literally as it
fell off the desk. The jolt appears to have dislodged the memory expansion
so System 7 doesn't start properly. The really observant will notice that
I'm using an old PC for my email at the moment.

Actually in a small period of lucidity I did some work on the specification
document for including a fully inverted search module into SWORD. With a
few more of those moments I should be able to get it completed and then you
can all comment. I knows it's been a long time coming but I think the wait
will be worth it.

In my muddled state I was having difficulty creating a sensible grammar for
search commans. Whilst chasing down some links on the craft of Bible
translation I found some useful things at the SIL site, which included a
better (search) grammar than the one I was formulating.
