    Many dictionaries now use computer data on word frequency to make their selection, so if you want a small list,try getting a pocket dictionary.

    You've asked for a big reference book or a small dictionary.

    I can't help you there, but you could make a start by clicking here, where you'll find the 10,000 most used English words in order of frequency.

    They use computers to analyse millions of words of texts so that they know accurately which words are more common, then use that information to compile dictionaries accurately.
