Why Study by Frequency?

Not all words are created equal. The purpose of this frequency dictionary is to list the most used words in descending order, to enable you to learn a language as fast and efficiently as possible.

First, we would like to illustrate the value of a frequency dictionary. For the purpose of example, we have combined frequency data from various languages (mainly Romance, Slavic, and Germanic languages) and made it into a single chart.

Amount of Words       Spoken            Written

10053%49%

1.00085%74%

2.50092%82%

5.00095%89%

7.50097%93%

10.00098%95%

Pareto’s law, also known as the 80/20 rule, states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.

In language learning, this principle seems to be on steroids. It seems that just 20% of the 20% of the most used words in a language account for roughly all the vocabulary you need.

To put his further in perspective: The Concise Oxford English Dictionary has over 240.000 words in current use, while you will only need to know 2.1% (5000 words) to achieve 95% and 89% fluency in speaking and writing. Knowing the most common 10.000 words, or 4.2%, will net you 98% fluency in spoken language and 95% fluency in written texts.

(Yes, this is a frequency dictionary of French, but the above example is purely for illustration purposes. It is safe to assume that all natural languages follow a similar pattern.)

How many words do you need to know for varying levels of fluency?

While it’s important to note that it is impossible to pin down these numbers and statistics with 100% accuracy, these are a global average of multiple sources.

250 words: the essential core of a language. Without these words, you cannot construct any sentence.

750 words: those that are used every single day by every person who speaks the language.

2500 words: those that should enable you to express everything you could possibly want to say, although some creativity might be required.

5000 words: the active vocabulary of native speakers without higher education.

10,000 words: the active vocabulary of native speakers with higher education.

20,000 words: what you need to recognize passively to read, understand, and enjoy a work of literature such as a novel by a notable author.

Keeping this in mind, the value of a frequency dictionary is immense. At least, that is if you want to speak a language fast. Study the most frequent words, build your vocabulary and progress quickly. Sounds logical, right?

The Advantages and Importance of Example Sentences.

The example sentences show you French words in usage. The French to English parallel text example sentences provide you with great reading practice.

We selected the example sentences to be a mix of spoken language (usually derived from subtitles) and written language (various written sources).

The advantage of having French to English example sentences:

You discover new vocabulary passively by reading the parallel text.

You will discover the grammar and flow of the language

You will learn common French idioms and expressions

You will learn the vocabulary faster by reading (and pondering) over the example sentences. Words learned in chunks and in context are learned naturally, and remember faster.

Per frequency dictionary, you’ll have read the equivalent of a ~100.000 page bilingual novel in French/English.

Tips for Studying Vocabulary

It is possible to build up your vocabulary to fluency in 60 days if you apply yourself. The amount of vocabulary needed for an acceptable level of fluency is 2000 words. By learning 34 new words per day, you will reach 2000 words in 60 days. If that’s too much, learning just 20 new words a day will take you a bit over 3 months. Yard by yard, everything is hard. But inch by inch, life’s a cinch!

Tips on maximizing your vocabulary studies:

Most people have never been taught how to learn effectively. We give some pointers on how to earn vocabulary more efficiently. When learning a new word, it’s important that you:

Memorize its meaning:

You don’t have to know the meaning by looking up the translation in your native language. You can also connect the new word to an image or visual picture of the object.

Memorize its spelling

If your goal is strictly communication, you can skip memorizing the exact spelling. Writing a word down helps internalize it in your memory.

Memorize its pronunciation.

A very important step that is too often ignored. It’s vital for certain languages whose spelling is different from pronunciation.

Memorize its use.

If it’s a simple noun, it’s usually not too hard to do, but for others, it’s important to know how to use the word (in our books, we give you example sentences showing you word usage.)

Use Mnemonics:

Mnemonics allow you to create hooks. Mnemonics provide hooks for your brain to attach information, which makes them harder to forget.

Effective Time Management Techniques

The Pomodoro Technique is a way of breaking up your study sessions into short segments, followed by even shorter breaks. This helps you study faster and smarter.

Read Books

Bilingual books, also known as parallel texts, make learning fun and pretty much effortless. You will learn new vocabulary naturally through reading. You will also get used to grammar and sentence structure.

Use Spaced Repetition Systems.

Hack your memory. Revisit vocabulary at certain intervals to ingrain the words in your long term memory. Flashcards use this principle, and so do audio courses. The intervals published in Pimsleur's paper were: 5 seconds, 25 seconds, 2 minutes, 10 minutes, 1 hour, 5 hours, 1 day, 5 days, 25 days, 4 months, and 2 years.

Caveats & Limitations.

A frequency list is never The Definite Frequency List.

Depending on what source material was analyzed, you may get different lists. A corpus on spoken word differs from source texts based on written language.

That is why we chose subtitles as our source. According to science, subtitles cover the best of both worlds: both spoken and written language.

This frequency list is based on an analysis of a huge amount of of French subtitles.

The raw data included over 1 million entries. The raw data has been lemmatized; words are given in their root form.

Some entries you might find odd, in their respective frequency rankings. We were surprised a couple of time ourselves. But the data does not lie. Keep in mind that this book is compiled from a large amount of subtitle data, and may include words you wouldn’t use yourself.

You might find non-French loanwords in this dictionary. We decided to include them because if they´re being used in subtitle translation, it is safe to assume the word has been integrated into the French general vocabulary.

We tried our best to keep out proper nouns, such as
