I was wondering if there was anything comparable in Irish to the General Service List for English. I know Buntús Gaeilge, published in the early 60s I believe and the fore-runner to Buntús Cainte, did contain information regarding word frequency but I was hoping maybe that research had been distilled into a list of the most common (roughly) 2000 words. Thanks for taking the time to read!

There is the new corpus for Ireland which has thousands of entrys and you could make a list of the top 2,000 all though im not sure if thats exactly what youre looking for?

The frequency is taken from texts with a total of 30 million words. it will most likely be different from the most common 2,000 spoken words.

I looked for such a list a few years ago and couldn't find anything.

Go raibh maith agat. I think I am going to work on combining that with the vocabulary from BC.

Here's my list of the most common n-grams in Irish based on their frequency:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... sp=sharing

If you filter away those that don't have a length of 1 then you're left with the General Service List!

This list is based on the largest Irish corpus available with 30 million words.

I also have a list of 70,000 Irish sentences with their translations:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

These were extracted from focloir.ie.

I'm interested in creating a tutorial for Irish as outlined here:

Please contact me if you feel you can help. My Irish is poor...
