When you first open a concgram file created by WSConcGram, it will look something like this one

 

concgram_dickens_first_view

 

It'll appear (by default) in frequency order as set in the settings but you can sort it by pressing the Word and Freq headers, and can search for items using the little box above the list.

 

concgram_lookup_combo_find

 

To get a detailed set of concgrams, double-click an item such as PIP (the hero of Great Expectations), or drag it to the list-box above. Then press the concgram button beside that.

 

You then get a tree view like this

 

concgram_dickens_second_view

 

where similar items are grouped. Each branch of the tree shows how many sub-items and how many items of its own it has.

The other controls are used for suspending lengthy processing (quit) changing from a tree-view to a list, for concordancing (ws-16-concord), for filtering (RandomReduce), clearing filters (unstore), and showing more or less of the tree (concgram_tree_level).

So if you prefer a plain list, click as Tree to view like this:

 

concgram_dickens_detail_not_as_tree

 

You may if you like select several items like this:

 

concgram_dickens_hands_pockets

but do note that the concgrams will have to contain all of the words selected.

 

After filtering appropriately and pressing the Concordance button

 

concgram_dickens_concordance

 

If you right-click and choose Show Details concgram_show_detailsyou'll get to see the details of any section of the tree you have selected:

 

concgram_details_pip_said_joe

where you see the various forms and the filename(s) they came from.
