Частотный словарь английского языка/ English Words Frequency List


Я (cosmopolit) взял этот э тот список на домашней странице Adam Kilgarriff и перенес все слова в таблицу Excell. На отдельных листах я сделал списки существительных, прилагательных, глаголов, наречий.

Возможно, если кто составляет себе карточки или программы для заучивания слов, этот список будет полезным. Грубо говоря, верхняя часть списка -   elementary, средняя – intermediate, нижняя – advanced.

The list-creation process replicated that used at Longman for marking dictionary frequencies in LDOCE 3rd edition, a process described in

Kilgarriff, A. Putting Frequencies in the Dictionary. International Journal of Lexicography 10 (2) 1997. Pp 135--155. Available here.

Numbers, names, and items that would usually be capitalised are excluded. Only simple words (eg containing no spaces) were considered. The following set of word classes is used:

conj (conjunction) 34 items  
adv    (adverb)  427   
v       (verb)  1281
det   (determiner) 47
pron (pronoun  46   
interjection  13  
a (adjective)  1124  
n      (noun)  3262   
prep (preposition) 71   
modal   12  
infinitive-marker 1

A word like "right" has four list entries, for adjective, adverb, interjection and noun. (Just ten words have more than three list entries.)

Unlike the Longman list, only the BNC was used (so the lists only reflect British, not American, frequencies); spoken and written frequencies are not separated; spelling variants are not counted as a single word; manual checking was less extensive. The lemmatised list was generated from the unlemmatised lists which are thus a less theory-dependent form of data.
