Auto-cross referencing Prototype

Here is a VERY rough protoype for auto-cross referencing using the simple verse matching method I mention in the other post. It's still in development. There are 100 ways I can think of to improve it, so it may get better day to day. But as is, it's not bad. Nothing fancy yet. You have to know the t...

Not very fancy though. You have to know the verse ahead of time, no fancy ajax throwing it up for you as you type yet. :)

Just for fun, here is Alma 32:21 with "faith" again, but this time using "bigrams" or in other words, considering the words that come before or after each keyword. Notice the verses are a little different. Ether 12:6.txt 10.5882366948 And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things;...

By the way, on that last one (Deut 6:13), that was the top score out of 74.

Here's one from a friend of mine: Alma 32:21 on "faith" Ether 12:6 Scores: 6.58823669484 And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no w...

Verse anyone?

Do you think this would be a substantial improvement over the Topical Guide? Granted, it would be more exhaustive, but would it uncover relationships that are not well-understood already? I personally think it would uncover "additional witnesses" that would help people understand concepts a little ...

The high level goal is that you click on a word in a verse and get returned to you a list of verses sorted by relevance. Relevance in this case is a measure of how much those other verses use that word in a similar context. One simple example could be clicking on "commandments" in 1 Nephi 3:7 brings...
