The purpose of this program is to locate and identify key words in a given text. To do so, it compares the words in the text with a reference set of words usually taken from a large corpus of text. Any word which is found to be outstanding in its frequency in the text is considered "key". The key words are presented in order of outstandingness.

 

The distribution of the key words can be plotted.

 

Listings can be saved for later use, edited, printed, copied to your word-processor, or saved as text files.

 

This program needs access to 2 or more word lists, which must be created first, using the Word List program.
