Concordle - Not so pretty cousin of Wordle

Produces words clouds and mini-concordances from texts you paste in.

Just copy some text into a text box and CONCORDLE will cre­ate a text cloud. The more often a word appears, the larger it appears in the cloud. Every word is clickable - clicking on a word shows you how the word is used in the text.
