Details and OptionsDetails and Options

  • In WordCounts[string,n], words that are considered part of an n-gram must appear consecutively in string, not separated by nonword characters other than whitespace.
  • WordCounts has the option IgnoreCase. With the setting IgnoreCase->True, letters are in effect all converted to lower case before being counted.
