Indexing by paragraph
Instead of indexing by line, you can index by paragraph. The technique resembles line indexing, but the text from a paragraph can be much longer. You can use paragraph indexes the same way you use line indexes. You can also index by chapter, by page, and by other units of text. The only difference is how your text-loading program parses the document into character fields. Otherwise, your word search code, as in the line table example, can be identical.
