    I want to find a way to identify the lexical frequency of a word. I find lots of lists in various corpora but I want to search a particular word, eg "pigtails", and see how frequently it is used. I found one place to buy such a list, but was hoping there was a free option for the same information. I'm focusing on the top 3000.

    Re: frequency

    There's no definitive list; they all depend on the quality, diversity and size of the corpus they use.
