WORD COUNT: the 86,800 most frequently used English words

WordCount™ is an artistic experiment in the way we use language. It presents , ranked in order of commonness. Each word is scaled to reflect its frequency relative to the words that precede and follow it, giving a visual barometer of relevance. The larger the word, the more we use it. The smaller the word, the more uncommon it is.

Ideas to use itin the English class:
  • Search a word and try to make a sentence  with the previous and next. 
  • Guess the number: enter a word and try to guess the number in the ranking using MORE or LESS.
  •  Choose a word and say the word cathegory (adverb, adjective...)
  • Any other suggestion...??
