A very simple, naive word counting function. Give it a string and it will give back a map with count of each unique word.



There is only a single input into this simple word counting function, and that is a basic string, which is assumed to be a sentence, a paragraph, etc.

textA string which consists of some number of English words.


Result maps each word to number of times it occurred in the input.

resultA histogram in the form of a dictionary, or a hash table with words mapped to count.


    "text": "Some number of words"
