The indivisible unit of Jane Austen's communication with readers is the individual word and that is what The Jane Austen Concordance is all about: an examination of the individual words used by Austen to create her great body of work. This is not a dictionary dressed up in the skirts of a concordance. It is an alphabetical listing of the word forms used by Austen to construct her great works and a numerical accounting of the usage of each of the listed word forms (in total and by individual work). To access the wonder of Austen's storytelling world, one need only read her novels. A legion of biographers can help shed light on the Austen back-story and upon Austen's great artistic vision. With this concordance we step back from the big picture, from delightful characters, from theme . . . and we employ the microscope, that is, we take a new and interesting micro-perspective on the Austen oeuvre This concordance is a something of a database containing the literary DNA of Jane Austen and is for: The deep and abiding admirers of Jane Austen and her writing. The literary-minded. The concordance-curious. The keepers of finer reference collections. Jane Austen scholars and researchers, be they academic or independent. And, modern-day Janeites and Austenolatry. This concordance is one way for the audience to step into the novels of Jane Austen and examine their meaning from a new perspective. Indeed, it is from the concordance's perspective that the linguistic and literary DNA of Jane Austen is best viewed and understood.
