Top 100 Most Frequent English Words

English is said to be a rich language: Shakespearian vocabulary is said to be 29000 words, and the recent corpuses of American English contain over a million words! However, an average speaker uses only about 4000 words (or even less) in everyday conversation. More than that, 40 words cover up to 50 per cent of a spoken text, 200 words cover up to 80 per cent, and 1000 most frequent words cover about 95 per cent of a usual conversation. What are these magic words? Do you already know them? How do they find these words? Let us listen, speak, and play.

Writing game

We've had several games lately, some of which were writing games but THAT game was played before only once. Don't miss the second coming of it! You will be given a topic (just not to make you lose time thinking what should I write about?) and one or several rules to compose your text in acordance with (such as every sentence starts with the same letter or use no words with the letter B). Come and write!
