Summary:   SOME WEEKS AGO, I MADE A QUERY ON LINGUIST LIST ABOUT FREQUENCY
VOCABULARIES ON ENGLISH, FRENCH, GERMAN AND SPANISH. MANY PEOPLE
RESPONDED WITH HELPFUL COMMENTS, WHICH ARE SUMMARISED BELOW.

THANKS TO EVERYBODY WHO WROTE TO ME. YOUR SUGGESTIONS AND INFORMATION
ARE VERY IMPORTANT FOR MY WORK.


MY NAME IS ERIK WILLIS AND I ATTEND BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY AS A
MASTERS STUDENT IN SPANISH. ONE OF OUR PROFESSORS IS VERY ACTIVE IN
FREQUENCY COUNTS, HIS NAME IS ORLANDO ALBA. (ORLANDO_ALBA@BYU.EDU) I
KNOW HIS TEACHER HUMBERTO LOPEZ MORALES WAS VERY ACTIVE IN THAT FIELD
ALSO. THEIR RESPECTIVE CORPORA ARE BASED ON THE DOM. REP. PUERTO RICO
AND I BELIEVE MEXICO AND WERE BASED ON AVAILABILITY (LEXICO
DISPONIBLE). HASTA AHORA NO CREO QUE TENGAN ALGO EN EL NET. EL QUE
MEJOR CONOCE LOS RECURSOS DEL NET EL FRANCISCO MARCOS MARIN EN LA
AUTONOMA DE MADRID. NO TENGO SU E-MAIL. I AM ALSO WORKINGG WITH
FREQUENCY COUNTS BUT AT A PHONOLOGICAL LEVEL. I AM LOOKING AT WRITTEN
AND ORAL NARRATIVES WHICH I BELIEVE HAS NOT BEEN DONE. OJALA PODAMOS
AYUDARNOS MUTUAMENTE CON BIBLIOGRAFIAS ETC.
