Wide range of academic fields use content analysis. In the core of most common content analysis lies frequency distribution of individual words. Web sites and documents are mined for usage of certain words as well as for their frequency. We introduce a user written command wordfreq to process content (on-line and local) and to prepare a frequency distribution of individual words. Additionally, another user written command wordcloud is introduced to draw a simple word cloud graph for visual analysis of the frequent usage of specific words.
Keywords: word counting, frequency distribution, content analysis, word cloud.
