Word Frequency Cloud

A word cloud is a novelty visual representation of text data used to depict free form text. Word clouds usually represent single words, and the importance of each word is shown with font size or color. This format is useful for quickly perceiving the most prominent terms and for locating a term alphabetically to determine its relative prominence. For our purposes, the word cloud visualizes the frequencies of the words in a ballad. The larger the word, the more frequently that word appears in the ballad.
