I set up a stack with 2 fields:

1. field "targetTEXT" containing the text I wanted to analyse,

2. field "wordList" (a listField).

then I made a button with the following script:

on mouseUp
    put the number of words in fld "targetText" into TXNUM
    repeat with AA = 1 to TXNUM
       put word AA of fld "targetTEXT" into line AA of fld "wordList"
       end repeat
end mouseUp

clicked on the button and "away we go".

Richmond.
