It works :
orderedwords = sorted(textstorage.keys(), key=textstorage.get)
The method textstorage.get will accept a word and return it's value which in
this instance is the count.
What I don't understand is:
for w in eachword:
textstorage[w]=textstorage.get(w, 0) + 1
How does textstorage.get(w,0)+1 give the count of the word??
