the of and to a in that it is was... wordcount

Is an interactive website created by Jonathan J Harris, who just launched a fascinating alternative to the google news.*

WordCount™ (follow navigation) 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.

Even more fun, is the QueryCount who count another kind of words. About the result, I wonder how it bring such words? In the recent context, the position of the word BUSH (14) is fascinating—check the word before and after. Compare to the word 36. See also 6059-6060.

(*)thanks to MacDigit for that one who helped me to discover WordCount.

update my funny words connections are not always funny, I discovered afterward, as they change all the time.
