Defines functions make.frequency.list.optimized

# #################################################
# Function for generating a frequency list of words or other (linguistic)
# features. It basically counts the elements of a vector and returns a vector
# of these elements in descending order of frequency.
# Refer to help(make.frequency.list) for farther details.
