We see that word lengths range from 3 to 10, and that the distribution is somewhat asymmetric, with a mode (the value observed most often) at 5. 9, and the median is 6. 1. A bar plot and histograms for selected variables describing the lexical properties of 81 words denoting plants and animals. the average of the two central values when the number of observations is even). 1 shows the histogram corresponding to the bar plot in the upper left panel.
