Find frequently used words

Is there a way to find frequently used words in a document? Or how often the most frequently used words are used?

Another way to say this is: Commonly used words. Or redundant word use. Or Repeatedly used words.

Looking for a word count of the most used words.

(It’s useful so that I don’t use a particular word annoyingly often. I can pinpoint over-use and replace with a synonym.)

You might try the extension Linguist.
