Reg. The final cumulative distribution plot[edit]

I wanted to crosscheck my understanding of Y axis in the final plot. X axis - represents the rank of the word (most frequent words in decent order) Y axis - represents the no. of sentences being covered in a relative scale (we consider the whole corpus and compute the no. of sentences in it) --Kandhasamy Rajasekaran (discusscontribs) 16:16, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

yes exactly that is what is going on --Renepick (discusscontribs) 22:31, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Frequency of words in English and French[edit]

are there lists of the 7000 most used words in english and french in wikipedia or wikitionaty ? --201.76.114.40 (discuss) 23:20, 25 January 2020 (UTC)

7000 would be a non-typical count. But you can check something like Duolingo for frequently-used-word lists. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 18:14, 26 January 2020 (UTC)
