langeek most common words page screenshotThe “Most Common Words” section on Langeek is a valuable resource for language learners. It categorizes English words based on their frequency of use in the English language. However, what sets Langeek apart is its meticulous approach to creating word lists. Let’s delve into the details:

Accurate Word Counting Methodology:
  • Many online lists indiscriminately lump together words of all types, resulting in an unhelpful mishmash. For instance, words with multiple parts of speech (e.g., “like” or “so”) are often incorrectly ranked at the top of such lists. This can mislead learners, as it fails to specify which form of the word is more common.
  • Langeek takes a more precise approach. Each list contains words from a single part of speech, ensuring that words with multiple POS (parts of speech) find their place in multiple lists based on the relative frequency of each POS. This accuracy benefits learners by providing context and clarity.
Separate Counting for Larger Language Structures:
  • Langeek goes beyond individual words. It recognizes that certain language structures, such as phrasal verbs, deserve separate consideration. Consequently, phrasal verbs are counted independently, avoiding inflation of verb and preposition counts.
  • For example, the phrasal verb “to put on” appears on a separate list. It is not counted as both “put” and “on” individually, allowing learners to focus on the complete expression.
