>>From what I understand of the evolution of the English language, the
first two numerals are "one" and "two" and should be expected to be
pronounced as spelled. I ve often wondered how we arrived at the
pronunciations: /wun/ and /tuw/.  Can you explain it?  Paul McDermott

Subject:  Word Usage Frequency List sought

I'm looking to reduce the size of an electronic dictionary that will
be shipped with my software, and I'd like to do that by removing words
that aren't in general usage.

Does anyone have access to a public domain list of the frequency of
words in general usage?

Thanks in advance,

Wilbur

Does anyone know of audio materials (e.g., cassettes) of Papiamento
(Papiamentu), the creole language of Aruba and Curacao?

Thank you.
