An English-French-German-Spanish Word Frequency Dictionary: A Correlation of the First Six Thousand Words in Four Single-Language Frequency Lists.
Eaton, Helen S., Comp.
This semantic frequency list for English, French, German, and Spanish correlates 6,474 concepts represented by individual words in an order of diminishing occurrence. Designed as a research tool, the work is segmented into seven comparative "Thousand Concepts" lists with 115 sectional subdivisions, each of which begins with the key English word listings contrasted with a similar thought-content word list in each of the three other languages. Separate indexes of each language grouping allow the reader to find the basic section in the appropriate divisional grouping in which it is located. The appendixes describe changes made from the original source list used, and provide a conceptual analysis of substantives, verbs, and adjectives in the list. (RL)
