Four Wordles (word clouds) based on my translation of Charny's Questions

Wordles or word clouds are graphic arrangements of words indicating by the size of each word how often it appears in a text.  How much can you read into that?  Well, at the least it may alert you to something you might otherwise overlook.

In all of these "Charny" and "asks" are among the largest terms.  That is because each of the 130 or so questions begins "Charny asks."

  1. Nice! I love playing with Wordle. Do you know that you can chose to exclude some words from the cloud's depiction? I found that useful for removing such artifacts as 'First'.

    I think that the best of these four is the one on War questions: really graphically gorgeous!
