in reply to Constructive criticism of a dictionary / text comparison script

I've done a small amount of similar lexicon work. One resource I would add, if you're not already aware of it, is the Moby Lexicon Project. The project developed a number of freely usable resources useful to English lexicography. My favorite are a couple of lists of words, sorted by prevalence from large samples, which is great for finding the more "interesting" words in a sample and ignoring the chaff.

    Thanks. I didn't know about the project, but I don't work with English much at all. What might be interesting is to compile a list of similar resources for other languages as well. I wish there were a compendium linguisticae for precisely this sort of thing, but I think there are too many people working on very particular projects for this to happen. Maybe me... someday.

    Before I completely forget and go off on another tangent (they kind of happen to me a lot), have you seen Kevin's Word List Page? There are some really interesting specialty lists there.
