Subject: SUMMARY: Word Frequency Databases


Dear Readers,

I recently posted a query concerning word frequency databases for
English, in addition to the widely used Kucera and Francis (1982), or
"Brown Corpus." Below is a summary of reader recommendations.

1. CELEX database (Max Planck Institute).
	http://celex.mpi.nl
	http://www.kun.nl/celex

2. BNC (British National Corpus)
	ftp://ftp.itri.bton.ac.uk/pub/bnc/

3. Cobuild corpus
	http://titania.cobuild.collins.co.uk/

4. ICAME (includes ordering info. for Brown Corpus)
	http://www.hd.uib.no/corpora.html

5. Wordsmith analysis software
	http://www.ndirect.co.uk/~lexical/


My heartfelt thanks to all who responded to the query. In addition, I
located two earlier summary postings to LINGLIST on the same topic;
these can be found at
'www.ai.univie.ac.at/archives/Linguist/Vol-7-0500-0599/0083.html' and
'www.linguistlist.org/issues/5/5-1133.html.
