The lists below were created in the course of researching the article ‘To what extent is the Academic Vocabulary List relevant to university student writing’, which appeared in the Journal of English for Specific Purposes in 2016. You can find more detail about how they were created in that article.
Based on a version of the British Academic Written English (BAWE) corpus which had been tagged for part-of-speech using the CLAWS program, they provide separate frequency lists for each of the 30 disciplines represented in the BAWE corpus.
The lists show each word in the disciplinary subcorpus, its part-of-speech, its raw frequency, normed frequency per million words, and the percentage of the words in the subcorpus accounted for by that word.
