Word Frequency Counter

Word repetition is something that I find I have a problem with. I tend to get into a rut and use the same descriptor over and over. I went looking for a way to check my writing for repetitious word use and discovered the Word Frequency Counter. 

This counter allows you to paste any of your text into their text box, click submit, and then it will analyze your word frequency. I’ve been using it to help edit both the cool sites I share with you (seriously you don’t want to know how many times I overuse “awesome” as a descriptor) and for my blog entries for a class where I’m writing about the Romantic poets a lot. 

Once you click the Submit button, it analyzes your work, and then shows you a list of each word in the text and how many times it located it within the text. Obviously common words (and, I, but, it, etc.) are going to crop up a lot. But in the first version of this write up I used the word repetition 5 times! 

This is a great tool to help diversify your writing. It also can give you a sense of the vocabulary you use a lot. I think I’m going to do an experiment and put the paper I’m writing in it when I’ve finished it, and see what the results are over the course of a longer body of work!

Go give it a try and discover what words you use repeatedly!
