WordCount Word Ranking Website

Website of the Day: WordCount

Fellow word-nerds, you'll love this site. WordCount, a site started as an artistic experiment in 2003, lists out the most popular words in the English language ranked in order of their frequency of use. The size of each word reflects its usage relative to the words around it.

The site indexes the rank of 86,800 words. Search for words to see their rank on the list ("happy" ranks at number 848; "geek" at 66,213; "computer" at 705) or search words appearing at a certain rank (number 101: "much"). It's fun to check out where your favorite words rank, or to just scroll through randomly and add a few to your vocabulary — searching for words in the 86,000s is particularly enlightening!
