label arbitrary strings on xaxis as in date mode

Is it possible to create an axis labe, much like done for dates, using
arbitrary strings. For example, I'd like to plot word frequency where the
x-axis labels are the words and the y-axis the frequency.

I've looks at the locator and formatString stuff but I can't quite seem to
get it. Any help appreciated.
