Visualization

Generate a WordCloud showing relative letter frequency:

In[3]:=
WordCloud[
 Flatten[Characters /@ 
   ResourceData["Scripps National Spelling Bee Champions"][All, 
    "CompetitionEndingWord"]]]
Out[3]=

Compare the relative letter frequencies of competition-ending Spelling Bee words to letter frequencies in ordinary English text:

In[4]:=
With[{beechars = 
   ToLowerCase /@ 
    Flatten[Characters /@ 
       ResourceData["Scripps National Spelling Bee Champions"][All, 
        "CompetitionEndingWord"] // Normal],
  dickenschars = 
   ToLowerCase /@ 
    Select[Characters[ResourceData["Oliver Twist"]], 
     StringMatchQ[LetterCharacter]]},
 
 beefrequency = Sort[N[#/Length[beechars]] & /@ Counts[beechars]];
 dickensfrequency = 
  Sort[N[#/Length[dickenschars]] & /@ Counts[dickenschars]];
 PairedBarChart[beefrequency, dickensfrequency, 
  ChartLabels -> {Placed[{"Spelling Bee", "Oliver Twist"} , Above], 
    None, Placed[Automatic, "CenterAxis"]}]
