WordCount™ is an artistic experiment in the way we use language. It presents the 86,800 most frequently used English words, ranked in order of commonality. Each word is scaled to reflect its frequency relative to the words that precede and follow it, giving a visual barometer of relevance. The larger the word, the more we use it. The smaller the word, the more uncommon it is.


Cool... :)

What about 5598. It seems to be every other word around here.

Very interesting looking at word groupings like this, seeing which words are used at approximately the same frequency.

I think we should all start using "conquistador" more often, as it is a cool word and is parked at number 86800 now. ;)
