A Compilation of Preschool Children's Word Frequency Counts.
Newman, Murray A.; Baily, Bruce E.
This study contains a rank-ordered listing of 1,000 most frequently occurring words accompanied by the percentage and cumulative percentage of language production accounted for by individual words and groups of words. The data are based on eight preschool word frequency counts ranging in date of appearance from 1928 to 1971. One of the advantages of this list is that it yields a more reliable frequency scaling based on a total number of almost 2 million words; at the same time the data are presented in such a way that studies considered not suitable for a particular use may be omitted.
