I would like to be able to find an item in a linked list or list array, to create to lists, one ordered by key value and one by count.
Given the following code:

Where can I find examples of the find method that would do the job? Because I'm getting the "method must be declared abstract" message when I try to compile this..

The only thing I see wrong on a quick once over is your method declaration
public static WordElem find(List T, String sTarget);
This is the reason your getting the abstract error, abstract method definitions end in ;
Change it to
public static WordElem find(List T, String sTarget)

I Hope This Helps
