Chapter: Comparison of the KVL with Frequency Lists

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.41781


Another key chapter, where we compare our KVL results with existing frequency lists, and demonstrate why the KVL adds unique value for particular pedagogical purposes. If Marc Brysbaert’s list of L2 ‘Prevalence’ (essentially ‘knowledge’) is published by the time we are finishing this chapter, we will compare the KVL with his results as well.
