Word shows them to me as I go along.

How? Do you use an add-on?

Cheers,

The new refrain:

I believe that Pro Writing Aid and Grammarly (premium) both have this function.
...

FYI - I have Grammarly Premium.

I search the MS Word add-on and used the Googles - I can't find a repetitive word count in Grammarly.

Cheers,

I like this: WordClouds

Cheers,
R.C.

UPDATE

If the question is: Which words are overused, use a word cloud. There are several free options.  I like the one above because it is wasy to use and has no word limit. I have pasted an 80k word manuscript and it told me which words were over used.

If the question is: Where did I use the wrong word, I use several options. Grammarly. MS Word Editor. When all else fails, highlight the word, <shift>F7 and compare the word I wrote to the list of synonyms.

I was thinking the same thing. At least he has bedroom slippers on.   :tup3b

How do you know they are not pyjama pants?  Grin :hehe

Because they don't have Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker all over them. I'm assuming the Winnie the Pooh are in the wash.

I happened to run a spellcheck this morning in MS Word as I had done a 'replace' I thought had gone wrong, and it surprised me by picking up on a duplicated word as well.

I did see a book cover recently with the ship from Space 1999 on the front. Someone must have got that from a stock site not knowing where it came from.

I license 3D models from cgtrader, pose them in Blender, render them with lighting and new textures, etc, and then put them in front of a background image or ten.

Some word processors allow Regex searches. I think word and libre/openoffice. If so, search for this:

\b(\w+)\s+\1\b

(Googled it because I couldn't remember the code)

At the moment I have Pro Writing aid - there's an "overused" and "repeats" tab you can select. As with pretty much every tool, it seems to flag up false positives, but might be worth a look?
