This really is what I need, strange as it may sound.

My source file really is like this also.

Not necessary for my needs right now. I am just going to need this script for one use, but the resulting data is going to be very helpful. The script would certainly be more generally useful if it can process more normal text (and would work for me), but it should be much simpler to make the script as I need it. Correction (in all caps): A phrase will be defined as a string len characters long and with a space at each end AND CONTAINING AT LEAST THREE WORDS. Thanks, Louis
