    Off list words

    When you want to divide vocabulary words into two groups, such as academic words and non-academic words, what do you say? Can I say as follows?

    List five academic words and list another five off-list words. ( I am trying to say the words that are not frequently used, but stil useful for study)

    Non-academic words are not necessarily "not frequently used".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
