Hi Nath,
I see a couple of spots that could affect performances:
1) getElementsByTagName navigates through all the nodes, and builds a list 
containing the elements with the name "word"; if you have a lot of them, it 
will take time and memory. Given that you later iterates over them, you 
should consider switching to a DOMTreeWalker/DOMNodeFilter approach.
2) when you get a "word" element, you invoke getChildNodes; this API should 
not be used when a lot of child nodes are present, as it emulates an array 
over a linked list. So, every time you call getLength it goes to the first 
node and starts counting until it arrives to the end; and when you call 
item(j) it does the same until it comes to the j-th element. Just replace 
them with getFirstChild/getNextSibling.
