A freeware tool for profiling the vocabulary level and complexity of texts.

My current tentative plans. If you would like see others, please feel free to suggest them on the AntWordProfiler Discussion group.
|Plans for 2015
Use the following method to cite/reference AntWordProfiler according to the APA style guide:
Anthony, L. (YEAR OF RELEASE). AntWordProfiler (Version VERSION NUMBER) [Computer Software]. Tokyo, Japan: Waseda University. Available from http://www.laurenceanthony.net/
For example if you download AntWordProfiler 1.4.1, which was released in 2014, you would cite/reference it as follows:
Anthony, L. (2014). AntWordProfiler (Version 1.4.1) [Computer Software]. Tokyo, Japan: Waseda University. Available from http://www.laurenceanthony.net/
Note that the APA instructions are not entirely clear about citing software, and it is debatable whether or not the "Available from ..." statement is needed. See here for more details.
These following lists can be imported into AntWordProfiler and used as reference lists when creating vocabulary profiles of target texts.
