In a word cloud, only the most important words are shown. By default, Wordsalad will extract the more frequent words and the more a word will be present in text, the bigger its size will be. For a given language, the app will filter out automatically all stop words like articles, prepositions and common words that only add noise to the look of your word cloud. You can also have Wordsalad dimension the words accordantly to their text order: please refer to the Settings section of this user guide to check this option out. Screenshot
