7/26/2017 – Hi again – I’m looking to hopefully by the end of August begin redoing the site with a fresh look and new features, hopefully to be done sometime before the end of September. This includes a new design, appearance, scorekeeping (hopefully with live leaderboards) and more. Keep an eye out! Also I will be removing the Flash quizzes and geography quizzes that aren’t using Google Maps by then (remaking some of them after the remodel) to make the site more clean and organized.

NOTES: The word frequency is taken from the 60,000 word frequency list from the COCA website. It is a LEMMA word list – meaning different forms of a verb are combined and counted together – i.e. “ate” is under “eat.” The COCA corpus is based on words taken from various mediums from 1990-2012, so it is quite recent in its focus. Verbs include all types of verbs, i.e. modal, auxiliary, etc.
