Summary:   Dear Linguists,

Since I posted the summary on English Word Frequency Lists, I have
received new valuable references:

Carroll, John, ed. 1971. The American Heritage Word Frequency Book.
NY: Houghton Mifflin.

- ---------------------------------------------------
Semantic frequency list for English, French, German, and Spanish; a
correlation of the first six thousand words in four single-language
frequency lists, compiled by Helen S. Eaton. Issued by the Committee
on modern languages of the American council on education. Eaton, Helen
Slocomb, 1887-

British National Corpus


- ---------------------------------------------------
CELEX Lexical Database: Dutch, English, German. CD-ROM. Nijmegen:
Centre for Lexical Information, 1993.--This CD-ROM is based on the
COBUILD Corpus, and it distinguishes parts of speech, so _run_ (verb)
is separated from _run_ (noun).

Many thanks to the contributors of this list of references:

Best wishes,
