Ignore List

Queries for 'most frequent words' will often turn up many insignificant words, cryptic symbols and single letters. These can be eliminated from the results by adding them to the 'Ignore List'.

Searching for 'most frequent phrases', consisting of two or more words, will also take this list into account. Any phrase starting or ending with an 'ignore word' will be ignored. For example:

Ignore List: # Words Phrase Ignored Not Ignored
"the" 3 "the United States" "Mack the Knife"
"of" 4 "Of Mice and Men" "United States of America"

However if the # of Words were shortened:

"the United States" -> "United States"
"Of Mice and Men" -> "Mice and Men"

These would both be found.
