Analyze your text

In a recent post called How easy is your writing to understand? I showed you how to use Microsoft Word to check the readability of your text.

Here's a tool you can use to quickly check the readability of any website or blog. You can also use it to do a deeper analysis of any text. Just enter the web address or paste in the text, and in addition to a readability index, you will get all kinds of interesting information, like

Number of different words used in the text
Average number of syllables per word
Sentence count
Average sentence length
10 most frequently used words
Most frequently used two-word expressions

Check it out: Textalyzer.
