WordList clusters

A word list doesn't need to be of single words. You can ask for a word list consisting of two, three, up to eight words on each line.

 

Example

Here is a small set of 3-4word clusters involving the word money.

 

money_wordlist_clusters

 

Some of them are plausible multi-word units.

 

How to do it

To do cluster processing in WordList, first make an index.

Then open the index. Now choose Compute | Clusters.

 

cluster_choices_for_index

 

tog_plus        Words to make clusters from

 

tog_plus        What you see

 

tog_plus        Working constraints

 

tog_plus        Phrase frames

 

 

It's a word list

 

Finally, remember this listing is just like a single-word word list. You can save it as a .lst file and open it again at any time, separately from the index.
