Reorganisation Deferred Frustrating

Having a little tea break and saw this, which appealed to my cryptic crossword side [via Matt Jones@del.icio.us]

WordCount is an artistic experiment in the way we use language. It presents the 86,800 most frequently used English words, ranked in order of commonality. Each word is scaled to reflect its frequency relative to the words that precede and follow it, giving a visual barometer of relevance. The larger the word, the more we use it. The smaller the word, the more uncommon it is.

Look up "deferred" - it comes in at number 9943. And either side of it, you get "reorganisation" and "frustrating". Says a lot.
