Concordance?

Amazon has gone nuts. Now you can see stats based on the number of polysyllabic words that are in a book and other information. In the future, this is what all reviews will look like. Apparently, my novel can be read by people with only a fourth grade education. That’s if you want your nine-year-old to go out and start killing people.

Worse yet, I’m being watched by people at Amazon.

Does this mean they have scanned your book and run it through an optical character recognition program? Or did they get an electronic file from your publisher? The scope of the task of doing this to all books on Amazon is mind-boggling.

I like that "ha" is the most common word in OCG. It isn't very evenly distributed, but it is frequent!
