word lists for immediate download
All word lists were generated from a multi-billion sample of the German language called a corpus. The word lists include the most frequently used words, most frequently used nouns, verbs, adjectives. The large corpus ensures all topics and text types are covered and the word list reflects how words are used by real users.
What does it mean that the word list is lemmatized?
All wordlists are lemmatized (=different forms of the same words are counted together, i.e. Name, Namen, Namens are counted together and listed as Name). This is generally more practical. However, sometimes non-lemmatized word lists listing each word form separately are needed. Sketch Engine can generate both types of word lists.
