 A concordance offers a context view of words in a text or collection of texts. It is a philological tool with a long history. Concordances have existed long before computers became available. They were produced manually for the Bible in order to allow members of the clergy to look up the different uses of words in all possible contexts in the Bible in order to enable them to determine the different potential meanings of a word or phrase. Another famous concordance of long standing is the Shakespeare concordance,​ a concordance of the works of William Shakespeare that likewise has existed in book form long before the age of the computer. A concordance offers a context view of words in a text or collection of texts.
