Visualization methods for single documents are either too simple, considering word frequency only, or depend on syntactic and semantic information bases to be more useful. This paper presents an intermediary approach, based on H. P. Luhn's automatic abstract creation algorithm, and intends to aggregate more information to document visualization than word counting methods do without the need of external sources. The method takes pairs of relevant words and computes the linkage force between
