List of function words

What are function words?

We make a difference between function words and content words in the Yoast SEO keyphrase analysis and prominent words analysis. Function words mainly express grammatical relationships between content words. They don’t have much intrinsic meaning on their own. That’s why we filter them in our analysis for a growing number of languages.
