The Academic Word List was developed by Averil Coxhead at the School of Linguistics and Applied Language Studies at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. The list contains 570 word families which were selected because they appear in a broad range of academic texts. The list does not include words that are in the most frequent 2000 words of English.
