“Word Clouds” & The Song of Songs

A student alerted me to a website that creates “word clouds.” The website is called “Wordle.” According to the site, “Wordle is a toy for generating ‘word clouds’ from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text” (www.wordle.net accessed February 4, 2009). I do not anticipate an application for this “toy” in biblical studies (it does not replace a concordance); however, it looks neat! Check out the word cloud for the Song of Songs chapter 2.
