I know I am crazy, but I need to create an index for a 550 page fairly technical document. Is there a way to generate a list of words in the document and how often they are used?

Absolutely -- it needs a script but nothing extraordinary.

 

What is in your opinion a "word"? A deliberate tricky question! Capitalization, hyphens, apostrophs, punctuation etc. all count.

 

What are you planning to do with the word frequencies? I bet "the" comes first, then "is" and "a".
