Grunddeutsch, Basic (Spoken) German Word List, Mittelstufe. Institute for Basic German [Series], Number Five.
Pfeffer, J. Alan
As a link between the words in everyday use and the sophisticated language of the arts and sciences, the 1,536 words of the "Mittelstufe" or Level 2 derive in nearly equal proportion from three sources: (1) the spoken or topical language, (2) a collation of all significant word lists compiled prior to February 1965, and (3) a statistical analysis of some 500,000 words in context published or reprinted during the years immediately preceding. The purpose of the list is to provide the lexical basis for teaching German in the third and fourth year in high school or the second year in college. Alphabetized word lists and appendixes indicating frequency of usage are included. Extensive reference to source materials is made according to topical listing. (Author/RL)
