As we had talked about earlier, I performed a frequency analysis on a large body of text, namely my personal journal entries from 4-24-02 through 4-23-05. The 3 years' worth of data proved to be rather useful. In the end, I had 1,110,954 words to work with as well as 4,397,669 characters. I ran frequency analysis and got the data attached in the spreadsheet. (The raw numbers are included below, in case of any problems in the attachment.)

Then I went through and eliminated the common words. In addition to the list of 29 distinct words that you gave us, I added some of my own (since I know that words that I commonly use in my entries). They include: "too", "my", "me", "she", "her", "his", "so", "we", "well", "really", "when", "went", "had", "as", and "am". This dropped my word count down to 638,952, and my character count down to 3,232,981.
