Subject: Spanish word frequency corpora

A week or two ago I sent an email (Linguist 14.3299) asking for word
frequency corpora for Spanish, preferrably electronic. I want to
thank everyone who responded to my request; I greatly appreciate
it. In case others could benefit from this same information, I've
summarized the results below.

First, there is a web site that lists a number of these corpora:

I also received suggestions of a few others not listed on that site:

Enr�quez, E. 1984. El pronombre personal sujeto en la lengua espa�ola
hablada en Madrid. Madrid: Consejo Superior de Investigaciones

Other corpora are available over the web at the following web pages:

Also, Marcial Terradez Gurrea has a list of Spanish high frequency
words that is soon to be published.

Again, thanks to everyone who responded to my earlier question!
