44 - In pursuit of words

Sifting through words like an archeologist through sand - this is one of the intentions of Word Count, an artistic experiment. It presents the 86,800 most frequently used English words, ranked in order of commonness. The ranking tells a good deal about our culture and the sequence of the rankings makes one pondering and leaves one sometimes wondering. I typed in "knowledge" and got the sequence: despite june knowledge moved news. Or the word "Austria": austria respected sanctions repeatedly. No joke! Wonderful toy.
