TitleHäufigkeitsverteilungen im Deutschen und ihr Einfluss auf den Erwerb des Deutschen als Fremdsprache
AbstractThe last major effort to develop a frequency dictionary ofGerman was made in the 1960s when Alan Pfeffer developed his Basic (Spoken) German Word List. Most vocabulary compilations for German are still based on the first, and until recently only, frequency dictionary based on a structured, representative corpus of German in the German speaking countries published in 1897. This article will discuss the development of a new frequency dictionary of German based on a modern, spoken and written corpus of the DACH countries. It will then focus on three questions related to the teaching of German. (1) What is the relationship between the new frequency dictionary and other basic vocabulary lists? (2) What text coverage is provided by the most frequent 4000 words for text genres such as spoken language, newspaper, literary, and academic writing? (3) What insights can frequency studies provide for the teaching of German grammar?
