Anthony Mark McEnery

A Frequency Dictionary of Spanish is an invaluable tool for all learners of
Spanish providing a list of the 4,000 most frequently used words in the
language. Based on a 20-million word corpus which is evenly divided between

dictionary provides the user with a detailed frequency based list plus
alphabetical and part of speech indexes.

All entries in the rank frequency list feature the English equivalent, a

Dictionary also contains thirty thematically organized lists of frequently
used words on a variety of topics. A Frequency Dictionary of Spanish aims
to enable students of all levels to maximize their study of Spanish
vocabulary in an efficient and engaging way.
