I am taking snapshots of the evolution of Sam Harris´ vocabulary in the Daily Meditations of the Waking Up application.
Unprocessed and processed (cleaned up) wordclouds
Occasionally I add completely unprocessed lists such as the following (20th September 2022), after 1 month. If one leaves out the particle "can" and "just" (as in "see if you can" and "just take your seat"), the most frequent ones are "notice" and "moment".
This is the somewhat processed word list, containing only significant words
This is the associated word list
But usually I add processed ones. This is the processing
Converting plural to singular (e.g. appearances to appearance)
Excluding all occurrences of less than 10 instances of the word declutter)
Homogenising the roots (e.g. see, seeing, seen)
Remove semantically insignificant terms (e.g. "however"), "is" etc
