HOW DO I USE WORDCOUNT?
WordCount™ allows you to browse the 88,000 most frequently
used English words. You can search for words 4 different ways:
1) Search by name. Enter a word by name into the
"Find Word" box and press enter, or click the gray arrow
next to the box
2) Search by rank. Enter a word rank into the "By
Rank" box and press enter, or click the gray arrow next to
3) Search within the entire language. The gray
graph that stretches across the whole screen represents the entire
English language. By clicking any point on the graph, you will be
taken to the word that corresponds to that point. A great way to
browse the language!
4) Move forward/back one word at a time. To browse
the language word by word, use the "Previous Word" and
"Next Word" buttons at the top of the screen.
At all times, the red "Current Word" slider adjusts to
represent the currently chosen word's place in the English language.

HAVING TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES?
WordCount™ requires some heavy CPU usage. Some computers
handle this better than others. If you're having difficulties, try
closing all other other programs and reloading
WordCount. WordCount runs best on PC Internet Explorer 6+ and
Netscape 7+. Flash is always a bit slower on Macintosh computers,
so if you're using a Mac, try revisiting WordCount with a PC.
Also, you'll need Flash 6 or later. If you don't
have Flash 6, you can click below to get it.
