18. WORDLE
[Solved by 255 players]
CLUE:
Name it.


The graphic was created using a free online tool called 'wordle'. It takes a passage of text and analyses it for the frequency of recurring words. It discards what it considers common words, such as 'the', 'of', 'down', 'in' and so on, and then creates a word diagram based on the frequency of the remaining words, the more frequent the word, the larger the word is. There are various iterations of this facility around the net, and I thought it would be fun to make a puzzle from this concept.

Here is a wordle from the first chapter of a fictional book, but the most frequently occuring word has been removed altogether. Your task is to work out what word is missing.
