    here: http://www.ranks.nl/stopwords/ you have some of the most common words (Stopwords) for English, Catalan, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portugese, Spanish, Turkish.

    If you search for stopwords in your block of text, and count how many of each words of each language you find, the language with most number of stopwords in your block of text will be the language of the text.

    Have you tried to determine the language of a block of text in that way?

    Not yet, but I plan to. I want to use it on my lyrics site to allow translations of lyrics in different languages.
