This program generates word lists based on one or more plain text files. The word lists are automatically generated in both alphabetical and frequency order, and optionally you can generate a word index list too.
The point of it…
These can be used
|1||simply in order to study the type of vocabulary used;|
|2||to identify common word clusters;|
|3||to compare the frequency of a word in different text files or across genres;|
|4||to compare the frequencies of cognate words or translation equivalents between different languages;|
|5||to get a concordance of one or more of the words in your list.|
These word-lists may also be used as input to the KeyWords program, which analyses the words in a given text and compares frequencies with a reference corpus, in order to generate lists of "key-words" and "key-key-words".
Word lists don't have to be of single words, they can be of clusters.
