3000 Instant Words.
Sakiey, Elizabeth; Fry, Edward
This book presents the 3,000 most frequently used words in rank and alphabetical orders. The words were derived from the American Heritage word list of the approximately 87,000 most frequent words in a count of 5 million running words sampled from a variety of elementary and secondary level curriculum materials, magazines, and books. The book notes that the first 100 words and their common variants (-s, -ing, -ed) make up 50% of all written material, while the first 300 words make up 65% of the written material encountered through junior high school. Also included in the book are reading lessons, vocabulary tests, spelling lessons, and two forms of a diagnostic test for placing students or measuring their progress in conjunction with the 3,000 Instant Words list.
