Vocabulary Profilers break texts down by word frequencies in the language at large, as representd by their frequencies in a corpus, not their frequencies in the text itself (which is done here). The English profilers on this site are based on Laufer, Nation, and Coxhead's Lexical Frequency Profiler (LFP), which divided the words of texts into 1 and 2 thousand (k) levels, academic words, and the remainder or 'offlist,' or on the many corpus-based frameworks that have been developed since, which incorporate up to 25 k-levels. VP is used for many research and teaching purposes, like rough-tuning text to learner via Frequency Based Tests.  ?
