Introducing the words data set
To set this up, you will need to download this file and load it into your database using the following commands:
-- Create the new table create table words ( word varchar(30) NOT NULL ); -- Load the words from file -- (replace $$PATH$$ with the location of the file) LOAD DATA INFILE "$$PATH$$" INTO TABLE words COLUMNS TERMINATED BY ',' OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"' LINES TERMINATED BY '\n';
- What is the table we created called? What are the column(s)?
- How many rows are in this table?
- How many words start with the letter ‘a’? End with an ‘a’? Contain an ‘a’?
- Which vowel is contained in the most words?
- Run the following query: SELECT word, length(word) FROM words LIMIT 10; What does the length function do?
- Use the length function to get the distribution of words by length. Does it make sense?
- What are the longest words in our dataset? How many characters do they have?
- What are the 5 letter words that contain a ‘c’ and an ‘x? How about the 4 letter words?
- Run the following query: SELECT * FROM words WHERE word LIKE ‘e_t’; What does it do? How is the ‘_’ different than the ‘%’?
- Find all the words that contain an ‘a’ as the second letter and an ‘e’ as the fifth letter.
