Sight Words Detective
The first thing you hear about Sight Words is that they comprise around 50% of general text. If you're like us, you would be a bit suspicious of such outrageous claims.
Just think about it. According to Webster's Third New International Dictionary, there are about 1 million words in the English language. Yet, half of what is actually written uses only 220 words. Is there a quick way to verify that?
Back in the twentieth century it would have taken people many hours of tedious and boring labor to count word usage statistics. But now, thanks to computers and the Internet, you can do it in seconds. Here's how:
- Paste any text into the form.
- Press the "Detect" button.
- Be amazed.
