Notice: Dear Linguists,

I'm hoping to find a list of about the most common 6,000 or 7,000 English lemmas, plus a list of their variations (run, ran, running, etc). The end goal is to analyze a piece of writing and encourage the author to use simpler language by highlighting all words that aren't in this list. I know little about linguistics and any advice would be very much appreciated.

Thank you!
