1. Overview of the Academic Word List (AWL)
  • AWL words are lexical items that occur frequently and uniformly across a wide range of academic material but are not among the first 2,000 words of English as given in West’s General Service List.
    • Range
    • Frequency
  • The AWL corpus includes
    • 28 subject areas in 7 general areas from 4 disciplines--arts, commerce, law, and science
    • about 3.5 million words
  • Words are organized into word families
    • Not lemmas
    • All related forms in a single grouping:
      • assume, assumed, assumes, assuming, assumption, assumptions
  • 570 word families in this word list
  • Word families are divided into 10 sublists based on frequency (with the most frequent words in sublist 1 and the least frequent in sublist 10)
