Great Expectations Text Analyser

Great Expectations was published in serial form between 1860 and 1861. Click on the feature below and explore the text of our Oxford World’s Classics edition by clicking on words, or select the buttons to view example sentences or frequencies for each word.

Technical notes:

  • You will notice that some words which you might expect to be capitalized, such as proper names, are presented in lower case. This is because the analysis requires all words to be normalized into the same case to generate accurate results.
  • The example sentences featured in this text analyser are automatically calculated using a full stop to mark the beginning and the end of a sentence. Therefore, on occasion the sentences may separate a name from its title (e.g. ‘Mr.’ from ‘Wopsle’). You can generate further example sentences by clicking on the ‘Example Sentences’ button again.
