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.

Does xticks do what you want?

I'm not clear on how to do the rotation of the font by the 45 degree angle
(as in the date mode) using just xticks. If there is some part to xticks
that would allow it I'd be pleased to hear it. Thanks.
