Most common nouns in English (1,000)

The frequency has been obtained through the British National Corpus, which includes a large collection of documents in British English. Those documents were highly representative of the English language and they included both written and spoken texts. However, they are slightly biased towards politics, that's why words like "government" have so much prominence.

If the plural is empty it means that you can apply the general rule for plurals in order to obtain it (adding -s or -es).
