Phrase Frequency Counter Advanced scans MS Word DOCX files, text and text-like files — including HTML and XML files encoded via ANSI or UTF-8 — and counts the number of occurrences of the different phrases. It is also a multiple-file phrase-search program. It is possible to specify exactly what counts as a word (e.g., words with or without hyphens or numerals). The phrases found can be listed alphabetically or by frequency, with rank and frequency displayed for each. It is possible to search within the set of found phrases.
Files of stop words (a.k.a. words-to-ignore) are provided for six European languages. When one of them is loaded, phrases can (i) all be counted except those consisting of stop words entirely, (ii) phrases with stop words removed (thus 'condensed phrases') and (iii) phrases which don't contain a stop word.
Output to a file is optional, and the output file can be loaded into a spreadsheet program for further processing.
