You can download samples of the 100k list in one of the following three formats:

  • Excel: the same format that you can purchase and download. Full frequency information for each word (COCA, BNC, COHA, and by genres), and clickable links to COCA

  • Web: very similar to Excel sample, but made available via a web page (for those who might not have Excel)

  • Text: 5,000 words (every 20th word in the 100k list); reduced information for each word
