What does a written text tell beyond its literal meaning? How do we know more about what’s on the writer’s mind or who’s behind him? One way can be simple text analysis. There are several programs and websites online to generate a sorted word frequency list of a written text. I couldn’t find one capable of counting word clusters (2 or 3 words occurring close together) so I wrote one. It’s called “Word Count” and you can use it, for instance, on speeches transcriptions of politicians and other leaders, to understand more about their motivations and top-of-mind concerns. Use it also on your diary for self-analysis.
