Phrase Counter

I haven't had the opportunity to try this out, but I saw it yesterday out in blog world and thought it the perfect tool for writers. I'll let you know once I get around to using it. Or, beat me to it and let us know what you think.

Ever wonder if you say a certain phrase too many times when writing? Can't recall what you wrote last night, much less last month? The Life Hacker blog posted an entry that apparently identifies how many times a Word document contains certain words or phrases. Cool, huh?

Here's the address:


  1. Kind of like . Have you tried that one yet?
    I'll for sure try this!

  2. ohhhh! Cool! I'll have to check it out. Thnx for the link.


  3. I've heard that about Wordles, too. One of these days I'll try it.

  4. Wordle? Hmmm ... I hadn't heard of that. I'll have to give it a try, too. It beats have to use Word search and check for phrases one at a time. Plus, It'd be fun just to ssee what is #1.

  5. There is another program, myWordCount, that counts words, phrases and sentences in Word documents, RTF files, pasted text and websites. You can find myWordCount at It is inexpensive and very powerful.
