How to make a word counter in Python?

To make a simple word counter in Python, you can use the built-in functions and data structures. Here's a step-by-step guide to creating a word counter program in Python:

  1. Open your Python editor or IDE.
  2. Define a function that takes a string input as an argument.
    def word_counter(text):
  3. Convert the input string to lowercase to avoid counting the same word twice.
    text = text.lower()
  4. Use the split() method to split the string into a list of words.
    words = text.split()
  5. Create an empty dictionary to store the word count.
    word_count = {}
  6. Loop through the list of words and update the word count dictionary accordingly.
    for word in words:
      if word in word_count:
        word_count[word] += 1
      else:
        word_count[word] = 1
  7. Return the word count dictionary.
    return word_count
  8. Test the function by calling it with a sample string input.
    text = "This is a sample text with words to be counted. The words should be converted to lowercase to avoid counting the same word twice."
    print(word_counter(text))

The output of the above program will be a dictionary with the word count for each unique word in the input string.
