When you set out to sell your home it is very easy to make mistakes if you are not given proper guidance from a professional. In the article you will see some of the top home seller mistakes when selling real estate and how you can avoid them at all costs.


Some of these home sale issues are easily avoidable as long as you know what they are. Don't be afraid to ask questions when interviewing a real estate agent. A Realtors job is to give you the best advice possible when you will be selling your home.

The Most Popular Words Used In Classic Books (INFOGRAPHIC) | Art and seniority | Scoop.it
Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass has a reputation for championing the individual ("I am large, I contain multitudes"), so it's surprising that the most frequently used word in the poem -- "all" -- applies to the collective or univer...

GoogleLitTrips Reading List's curator insight, October 25, 2014 11:49 AM

25 October 2014

 

Interesting! Surprisingly, most words used in classic books by 8 authors are single syllable words. 

 

The word cloud above is from 'To the Lighthouse' by Virgina Woolf. I was pleased to see that the word "thought" was used so frequently that it merited large font size in center stage.

 

Works represented include:

'To the Lighthouse' by Virginia Woolf

'The Old Man and the Sea' by Ernest Hemingway

'Pride and Prejudice' by Jane Austen

'Nineteen Eight-Four' by George Orwell

'Metamorphosis' by Franz Kafka

'Frankenstein' by Mary Shelley

'Leaves of Grass' by Walt Whitman

'The Waste Land' by T.S. Eliot

 

hmmm... now how to make an engaging learning experience out of these examples.

 

How about a challenge after reading one of the stories that is essentially a multiple choice quiz (don't think I'd grade it myself) where a selection of 5 or so of the words in the cloud are the choices. 

 

No, this is not a vocabulary lesson as much as it is an exercise in recognizing a bit of the author's style.

 

By the way, the article also includes a link to WordItOut.com where text from Project Gutenberg are used as the data source.

 

Now, a word about Word Clouds...

Do they represent the most important vocabulary or simply the most popular? I'm reminded that "most popular" is not an endorsement. That is unless you actually believe that vanilla IS the best ice cream flavor or Jerry Springer is the most valuable way to spend your TV time.
