How to parse the Aleppo codex and analyze its content in python

These notes are part of the blog post I wrote in my quest of trying to learn Hebrew. Maybe you want to check that out first for proper context. Some important notes to keep in mind: I am applying literate programming for some lisp code that I write to maintain my Doom Emacs configuration. I am using pysword which is a wrapper in python around the Sword project. So I already have the bible modules correctly correctly installed on my computer.

Learning hebrew like a geek

The other day I was thinking about some practical way of learning hebrew, something dynamic that tickles my scientist curiosity. And I thought, wouldn’t it be cool if I could parse one of the hebrew codexes and get the top 20 most frequent words of a chapter or a book? Well this is an attempt to answer these type of questions. How? So I rolled my sleeves and I thought: I will google the Aleppo codex in plain text so I can download it and later use it for analysis.
