Phrase Frequency Counter for Writers

In a sprawling manuscript, it’s easy to forget how often you repeat your favorite phrases. Using the Phrase Frequency Counter online, you can actually track what phrases you abuse.

For instance, we used the online tool with a recent essay by author Sarah Palin. Turns out she used the phrase “big government” eight times in the 1,700-word piece of writing.

The website also offers a Word Frequency Counter to map your most overused words. In the same essay, Palin used the word “big” 18 times and the word “spending” 14 times. What words do you abuse in your writing?
