Does this help you...?

on mouseUp
   put empty into fld "result"
   
   set itemDel to tab
   replace comma with space in fld "source"
   replace "." with space in fld "source"
   replace space & "'"  with space in fld "source"
   replace  "'"   & space with space in fld "source"
   replace "?" with space in fld "source"
   
   repeat with count = 1 to the number of words of fld "source"
      put lineOffset( word count of fld "source", fld "result") into boo
      if boo = 0 then
         put word count of fld "source" & tab &  1 & cr after fld "result"
      end if
      if boo > 0 then
         add 1 to item 2 of line boo of fld "result"
      end if
   end repeat
   
   --sort lines of fld "result" numeric descending by item 2 of each
end mouseUp
