    Thank you sir for trying to help me, and sorry for mistakes.
    My question was meaning how to collect all most used words, not just 1000?
    It means i want to make a reference of english words, small dictionary.

    Re: my own dictionary

    What is your definition of the "most used" words in the English language?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Learning vocab like this is very difficult- if you don't recycle the words and keep practising them, it is easy to forget them. It is often better to learn smaller numbers of words, but in such a way as to commit them to long-term memory. Also, look up all the different forms a words has - adjective, verb, adverb, noun, etc - as this is an economical way of increasing your vocabulary. Please remember that knowing a lot of words is not the same as speaking a language- it's all about what you do with the words, not how many you know.

    Re: my own dictionary

    Thank you for all,
    I am a computer teacher, i read many books of computers.
    My way of learning is reading and reading (reading 50 words in 5 minutes every day).
    So i need more words.
    For example car means automobile, motor vehicle, vehicle, motorcar, auto, wheels, etc.
