Word frequency data


iWeb (released in 2018) contains about 14 billion words of text from an extremely broad range of websites. iWeb is one of only three corpora from the web that are 10 billion words in size or larger, and it is the only such corpus with carefully-corrected wordlists.  iWeb is about 25 times as large as COCA (the other main source for the word frequency data), and there are some important diffxwerences between the iWeb list and the COCA-based list.

When you purchase the data, you receive two different files: a lemmatized list (below left) and a "word forms" list (below right). The word forms list has approximately 97,000 word forms.

An explanation of the columns for both types of data is found in the downloadable sample (which contains every tenth word in the 60,000 word lemmatized list).
