    Is this a high-frequency word? 1

    Could you teach me if these words are high-frequency words?

    * page - - as a verb, do you usually use this word to call somebody up
    by a cellular phone?

    - - the announcement at a department store,
    is "Paging Mr./Ms. . " often used
    instead of "Attention please,..." ?

    It usually means that someone is being summoned on a public announcement system. It comes from the days when the summons would be physically carried by a page - a boy employed to do menial tasks in a public building.
