ARST ARSW: Star Wars Sorted Alphabetically

Holy crap! Youtube user Suckerpinch wrote a special program to organize all of the English dialogue in Star Wars, split it into words, and sort the results alphabetically. At a total running time of 43 minutes it's an absolutely bizarre experiment, but some interesting data was extracted throughout the process. I've seen the fandom do some interesting studies of the original trilogy, but this one takes the cake. Oh and in case you were wondering, Suckerpinch admitted to using the 'Han short first version' in this analysis to troll purists of the revised version.

Fun facts:
The word 'lightsaber' only appears once in this film.
There are 43m5s of spoken English, 81m39s of other.
The most common word is 'the,' of course, said 368 times.
The word with most screen time is 'you,' at 52.56 seconds.
There are 1695 different words, and 11684 total words.
The longest words are 'responsibility,' 'malfunctioning,' 'worshipfulness,' and 'identification,' all 14 letters.
