TagCrowd – looking at high frequency words

Image 1

TagCrowd is a website that creates a tag cloud (like the one on the left showing tags on this blog) from any web page or piece of text you enter. In a tag cloud the most frequently used words appear bigger. This application would be ideal for use in Modern Languages, looking at high frequency words (see image 1 above), in English for text analysis (see image 2 below, tag cloud of Lear’s poem “The Jumblies”) or for any subject where students need to learn keywords.

The website can be accessed here.
