Uncommon Words In Fiction

The categorization of words as either common or complex is an essential element in many readability calculations. A higher percentage of known or common words will result in text that is more readily comprehensible by a wider audience.

This report characterizes whether a word is complex or common based on the frequency of appearance in published fiction.

Words falling outside of the top 5000 most frequently appearing words in published fiction are highlighted as uncommon.
