VP-Coca (NEW - 2019 Oct 31)

Single word frequencies, no groupings (such as k-bands, families, or lemmas)
»As discussed in Crossley, Cobb & McNamara (2013)

Vocabulary Profilers match the words of a text to the words of a (usually corpus based) frequency list. All but the last of 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 the General Service List's 1 and 2 thousand (k) levels, academic words, and the remainder or 'offlist,' OR on the many lists developed since. VP is used for many research and teaching purposes, like rough-tuning texts to learners via Frequency Based Tests.
