Hi E's, I have one string that sometimes have a repeat words, and I want to know how detect them, and put them in other variable.
In practice:
$string = "cabanas pesca . fotografias algarve tavira cabanas . cabanas tavira fotografias . ser portugues . moncarapacho algarve . vila moncarapacho fotos . vila moncarapacho . free photos . foto fotografia . paisagem urbana . paisagem ceu . paisagem montanha . paisagem rural . concurso fotos paisagem . fotografia digital . foto paisagem . fotografia paisagem .";

The goal is detect repeat words and put them in new variable:
$newvariable = "cabanas fotografias algarve moncarapacho fotos foto paisagem";

How I do that?

Regards, JC

Then try this:
$string = "cabanas pesca . fotografias algarve tavira cabanas . cabanas tavira fotografias . ser portugues . moncarapacho algarve . vila moncarapacho fotos . vila moncarapacho . free photos . foto fotografia . paisagem urbana . paisagem ceu . paisagem montanha . paisagem rural . concurso fotos paisagem . fotografia digital . foto paisagem . fotografia paisagem .";
 
$words = explode(' ',$string);
$counts = array_count_values($words);
$multiple = array_filter($counts,create_function('$item','return $item>1;'));
unset($multiple['.']);
$newvariable = implode(' ',array_keys($multiple));
echo $newvariable
