myWordCount Word Frequency program...and more

NEW! Version 3 - Better, faster, more features...
and now supports Mac and Windows!

New Features
We have added some great new features to our word and phrase counting program myWordCount in addition to really speeding up the program. These new features include:

  • Flesch-Kincaid grade level analysis: myWordCount analyzes every sentence and assigns a Flesch-Kincaid grade level score to each sentence to make it easy to spot your difficult sentences.
  • Character counting: Count the number of occurrences of every character in your document. Create a character frequency chart.
  • Group words by their stem or root: The Count Words function now gives you the option to group similar words together based on their root or 'stem'. The stemming and lemmatization algorithms quickly combine these similar words.
  • Find adverbs ending in ly: Writers often overuse words made into adverbs by adding 'ly' at the end. myWordCount finds and highlights these ly adverbs for you.
  • Scrivener file support: The program can read Scrivener project files and analyze their content. Both Mac and Windows versions are supported.
  • Mac support!: Our new version now supports the Macintosh computer, as well as Windows versions from XP and later.
  • FAST!!! We sped up most of the program functions by a significant amount. We compared our previous version (2.03) to this new version by opening a 430-page novel and running some of our count routines on the text. The results were eye-opening (I know...why didn't we do this before?) The times are below:
(430-page document)
Old version 2 New Version 3
Word Count :55 :07
Phrase Count 1:10 :14
Sentence Length 10:20 :03
(not a typo-3 seconds)
Grade Level not available :04
Character Count (total and by char) not available :02

What does myWordCount do?
myWordCount facilitates examining your documents for character, word, phrase, and sentence usage. The goal is to improve your writing by finding overused words and phrases, long sentences, and sentences that are difficult to read, indicated by a high Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level score. Most of the graphing routines also highlight words and phrases that are used close to each other, something that is often noticed by your readers. myWordCount includes:

  • Word frequency counter. Count the usages of every word in your document. Quickly sort the list by word or usage count. You can then select any word and highlight all occurrences of that word in the document. A new filter allows you to group words with similar roots or 'stem's, such as 'write, writing, writer, writers, wrote'.
  • Phrase frequency counter. Count the usages of every 2, 3, 4, or 5-word phrase in your document. Quickly sort the list by phrase or usage count. You can then select any phrase and highlight all occurrences of that phrase in the document.
  • Sentence-start phrase counter. Count the usages of every 1, 2, or 3-word phrase used at the start of each sentence in your document. Quickly sort the list by phrase or usage count. You can then select any phrase and highlight all occurrences of that phrase in the document.
  • Sentence length counter. Count all sentences and produce a graph of all sentence usage by sentence length. You can then view the document and easily find long sentences or sentences that are similar in length near each other.
  • Flesch-Kincaid grade level analysis: Analyze and graph the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level difficulty level of each sentence in your document. This allows you to quickly find those sentences that are raising your document's difficulty level.
  • Find and count adverbs ending in 'ly': These are often words made into adverbs by adding 'ly' at the end. Writers often overuse these types of adverbs and myWordCount will find them for you.
  • Character counter. Count and graph the occurrence of every character in your document, almost instantly.
  • Save your results: You can produce a printed report off all tables of word and phrase usage, including the sentence length graph. Or save this information to a csv text file.
