Name the 25 most common (or less for Q, X, Y, and Z as nouns must be in the 5,000 most common list to qualify) nouns for each letter. Number of letters in each are shown. See notes at bottom regarding the frequency list nouns were taken from. Notes – The word frequency is taken from the 60,000 word frequency list from the COCA website . It is a LEMMA word list – meaning plural forms of a noun are combined and counted together i.e. “books” is under “book.” A handful of abbreviations, slang, and proper nouns may be included. The COCA corpus is based on words taken from various mediums from 1990-2012, so it is quite recent in its focus.
