I wrote some code to contribute to the text analyzer and sent it to you on Saturday night. I haven't had a reply, yet. Could you tell me if you have received it?

Hi,

I am having the same problem. When I try to access the Advanced Text Analyzer, I am prompted for my login information and then a message comes up that says that I am logged on but the user name and password fields pop back up and are blank.

Thanks,

Maya

I tried the advanced text analyser today.:) It is very interesting to see our proficiency in English writing.
The one thing I would like to is to correct my mistake or any suggestions on usage of certain words or sentences. If there is, the text will become better and do more good in improving one user in their writing.:lol:
Anyway it is really good to have this analyser:up:.

In particular, I was looking for a tool that would show the Unique words and/or phrases in a passage (count = 1). From what I could see, it looked like those were excluded. Is there a way I can view them?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Highlighting words that only appear once is possible, I just hadn't thought of any need for it.

Phrasal analysis, on the other hand, is much more difficult.

If I understand your question, then the answer is yes you can view a list of all words.

Navigate to the Word Frequency report and you should see a list of words that, by default, excludes common words, numbers and single-occurrence words. You can use the tick boxes on the right of the report to include or exclude any of these options.

I hope that answers your question. ;-)

Yes, nice work.
I had trouble getting the sort by “Frequency” combo box selection to work under “Hard Words”.

I'll check on that issue when I can (soon) and will report back. ;-)

When I analyzed some text by Hemingway, the Analyser graded it as a 6th grader's writing. Then I mingled some long words in gibberish, the Analyzer concluded that the text came from a "30th grade" college graduate. What can be improved?

Hi to all,

I ran your analyser: it's a good attempt to give some info but not powerful enough for me at least at first glance, I wish you good luck with its development. Maybe before running it it would be handy to give some detailed features, of course it is just my first impression.

My skills in English language are forever far from needed, but this bothers me not because I believe in constant/lifelong improvements concerning either programming or a language sidekick tool.

I posted in this sub-forum a thread: 'Brutally fast 4-gram phrase ripper' which after accumulating 5 posts I intend to describe in a better/useful fashion.

Regards
