too much typing—since 2003


yet another addictive website

This one courtesy of the Editrixie: Wordcount. Because it's based on both written and spoken language, it's probably more reflective of actual frequency of usage than a purely written sample would result in. (Although since it's based on British sources, it probably skews Britward.)

Amusingly, certain words in sequence create some telltale phrases: "America ensure oil opportunity" is a sequence from 992-995, for example. My favorite so far? "Beefheart chambered royally resonating" (68447-68450).

Also: while "Beatles" (12851) is not, in fact, more popular than "Jesus" (1845), "John" (266), "Paul" (884), and "George" (913) are. Poor "Ringo," though...bringing up the rear at a lowly 40490.
