Search this Article
After gathering its own English texts, then comparing them with the British National Corpus, the JACET Committee for Revising Basic Words compiled a list of the 8000 most frequent and important English words. The list is available in a handbook The JACET 8000 Basic Words. In this article, the author, a member of this committee, examines to what extent words in this list correspond to those in four well-known academic word lists, and then tests how well these 8000 words actually cover the vocabulary in seven types of randomly chosen English texts.
