3. How are "repetitions" counted?

If the same segment occurs more than once, the second and subsequent segments are counted as “repetitions.” The count of repetitions is maintained across documents, so if you analyze more than one documents, and a segment occurs once in one document and once in another, the second occurence will be treated as a repetition.

  • ‘value’ attribute of <input> tags (i.e. the text on form buttons)
