    Default use of meaningful words

    Hello there

    can anyone let me have any references about the average proportion of "meaningful" words used, generally, in English texts? I am sure there must be studies, but I don't really know where to start
    Yours,
    Marianne

    Default Re: use of meaningful words

    Welcome to the forums, Marianneway.

    Do you have any ideas as to what a "meaningful" word might be?
