  Thank you for all the assistance, links, and suggestions from the list!
  After talking with the nice folks at BibleWorks I was given some easy
  instructions to generate the frequencies quickly through their application.
  All that was required was to generate a new list from the WTM database (with
  morphology off and vowels on) in the Word List Manager and then to sort it
  by frequency! For those with BibleWorks interested in the process:

  The only major hurdle left was identifying homonyms which was also turned
  out to be an easy task because the new morphology databases tag the homonyms
  Ironically it appears that John Allred has already created a similar web
  application using Flash. It appears *very* robust and has an extensive list
  of vocabulary groups (that can even be dynamically combined).
  Again, thanks for all the assistance and suggestions. Sincerely,
  Joshua Luna
