What are the most Frequently Used Words in English?
Based on the evidence of the billion-word Oxford English Corpus, it is possible toidentify the hundred commonest English words found in writing around the world.These are listed below.It is noticeable that many of the most frequently used words are short ones whose main purpose is to join other longer words rather than determine the meaning of a sentence.These are known as Function Words.
