according to wikipedia 30% of Isaiah is quoted in the BOM. A great scholar who has done research into this extensively is Sandra Tanner, She explains a lot of early mormonism in her book "Changing World of Mormonism."

From the Encyclopedia of Mormonism:


Book of Mormon = Isaiah

Mosiah 14 = 53
Mosiah 15:10 = 53:10
Mosiah 15:14-18 = 52:7
Mosiah 15:29-31 = 52:8-10
3 Ne. 16:18-20 = 52:8-10
3 Ne. 20:32-35 = 52:8-10
3 Ne. 20:36-46 = 52:1-3, 6-7, 11-15
3 Ne. 21:8b = 52:15b
3 Ne. 21:29 = 52:12
3 Ne. 22 = 54
Moro. 10:31 = 52:1-2; 54:2

29:6-10 = 2 Ne. 27:2-5
29:6 = 2 Ne. 6:1529:11-12 = 2 Ne. 27:15-19
29:12-13 = 2 Ne. 28:3
29:13-24 = 2 Ne. 27:25-35
29:13b = 2 Ne. 28:14b
29:14 = 2 Ne. 25:17 (mixed)
29:14, 11:11 = 2 Ne. 29:1
29:15 = 2 Ne. 28:9b
29:21 = 2 Ne. 28:16a
48-49 = 1 Ne. 20-21
49:22-23 = 2 Ne. 6:6b-7
49:22-23; 29:14 = 1 Ne. 22:8

52:7-10 = Mosiah 12:21-24
52:7 = Mosiah 15:14-18
52:8-10 = 3 Ne. 16:18-20
52:8-10 = 3 Ne. 20:32-35

52:12 = 3 Ne. 21:29
52:15b = 3 Ne. 21:8b
53 = Mosiah 14
53:10 = Mosiah 15:10
54 = 3 Ne. 22
54:2 = Moro. 10:31
55:1-2 = 2 Ne. 9:50-51
55:1 = 2 Ne. 26:25


Notice that all the passages in Isaiah from ch 40 on are from the part of Isaiah which Bible scholars believe were not part of Isaiah until after the Babylonian Captivity (i.e., after Lehi had left Jerusalem). So they could not possibly have been in the Brass Plates.

Yes, I have it on a CD-ROM disc, copyright 1996, published by Infobases, which is now defunct (sfaik).

It is copyrighted material, forbidden to duplicate. And I would not send you the original.

I don't understand why you don't follow the suggestions given you on your original thread, and search it online. And I don't understand why word frequency in this reference work would provide any interesting conclusions.
