We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Dear Linguistlist members,
I’m conducting a cross-language priming study with English-Urdu/Arabic bilinguals. To make an appropriate stimuli selection I need to control for English and Urdu/Arabic word frequency and the association strength. I have word frequency dictionary of English (Kucera & Francis, 1967) and association strength database of English (South Florida word norms database). However, I don’t have these sources for Urdu/Arabic. The internet and library search did not provide any results.
If anyone knows where I can access word frequency and association strength norms for Urdu and/or Arabic, please let me know.
