I have a rather large document containing a lot of text, so I am seeking for a tool automating the process of finding word repetitions.
- Find word repetitions (which, for example, occur in the same paragraph) inside a Microsoft Word document.
The most convenient way would probably involve a Word add-on, but other ways (e.g. programs operating on exported formats such as PDF) are also welcome.
The repetitions should be allowed to differ in case, prefixes, suffixes, declension or in grammatical number.
For example, the following pairs in each case should be treated as if they were the same:
- house, house
- friend, friend
(An algorithm using a heuristic comparing the word's stems would suffice in many cases, in my opinion.)
- A blacklist of words (e.g.
of, the, by) which is manageable by the user.
My request is different from a word frequency analyzer insofar that I would like to be presented with word repetitions only occurring in the same paragraph or in the same specified set of lines.
Gratis software is always welcome, but I am also open to trial versions allowing me to test the program before buying it.
