Hi Debbie:
Two other thoughts that I forgot to mention: 1. When you read in a
package successfully, it usually gives no response.  If there are
shadowing problems it will tell you so by giving a warning message.

2. If you have Global`Frequencies defined, then this will shadow all
other "Frequencies" functions in any other context.  You can remove the
shadowing problem by:

Mathematica will remove the first "Frequencies" that it finds i.e.
Global`Frequencies.  This will make the next "Frequencies" function
accessible by its short name and thus remove the shadowing problem.
