Is there a tool to check whether I'm using the top N most common words

English Language & Usage Asked by Alan McBee on December 5, 2020

Along the lines of Randall Munroe’s tool used to determine whether a word is one of the most common thousand words in English (https://xkcd.com/simplewriter/), I’m wondering if there is a tool that could determine whether a word is one of the most common 2,000 words, or 5,000 words, etc.

If you know a little programming (in R or Python, say), there are very easy ways to do this, which I can describe if you want. Otherwise, try using Find on some of the frequency lists given in this page:
