Abstract:

A Frequency Dictionary of French is an invaluable tool for all learners of
French, providing a list of the 5000 most frequently used words in the
language.

Based on a 23-million-word corpus of French which includes written and
spoken material both from France and overseas, this dictionary provides the
user with detailed information for each of the 5000 entries, including
English equivalents, a sample sentence, its English translation, usage
statistics, and an indication of register variation.

Users can access the top 5000 words either through the main frequency
listing or through an alphabetical index. Throughout the frequency listing
there are thematically-organized lists of the top words from a variety of
key topics such as sports, weather, clothing, and family terms.

An engaging and highly useful resource, the Frequency Dictionary of French
will enable students of all levels to get the most out of their study of
French vocabulary
