This delightful interactive tool — WordCount.org — is a way to explore word frequencies in English! For example, I am always curious about the frequency of animal words, so I typed in frog, and you see the words that have similar frequencies. On the one hand, the words might seem random (what does a frog have to do with a canopy?), but even though they are not related in their meaning, they share almost the same word use frequency. Fascinating stuff!
