WordCounter ranks the most frequently used words in any given body of text. Use this to see what words you overuse (is everything a "solution" for you?) or maybe just to find some keywords from a document.

Interesting, but it doesn't work very well. The system refuses to recognize such words as "shall" or capitalized terms and can't handle long texts. No instructions found at the site.

Such programs are also useful for extracting phrases from long documents to compile one's own glossary. I use Timothy Craven's ExtPhr32 .

For more hardcore type of stuff you might also want to try Mike Scott's Wordsmith Tools.

I think the inability to handle long texts is its main shortcoming.
