Language fact of the day

The name that appears most often in Genesis is "Jacob", followed by "Joseph".

In other news, the most common word in Moby Dick is "the"; the most common noun (excluding pronouns) is, not surprisingly, "whale".

In Genesis, Moby Dick, and a number of other texts, three-letter words are more common than word of any other length (the one exception I've found so far is Moby Dick)

(Yes, I am learning to use NLTK, which so far I like a lot)
