The Vocabulary of the Encyclopedia Britanica


by Edward L. Thorndike, Irving Lorge & S. Karpin - 1937

The authors have made a count of all the words outside the first or most used 2500 of the Thorndike list of 20,000 found in a random sampling of a million words in the Encyclopedia Britannica, made up of fifty selections of 20,000 words each. They have recorded in the case of all such words beginning with A, B, C, J, K, L, M the number of selections or "sources" as they shall call them in which the word appears and the number of times it occurs in each.
