Given that subtitle-based frequency lists are very good predictors of response times in visual-word recognition (e.g., see the work by Brysbaert and colleagues), here goes the “Wikipedia” subtitle list from Matthias Buchmeier, which is available at:


The list was created in 2008. Size of the corpus: 6527 TV-series and movie subtitle files: 27417111 words. This list can be used under the terms of the cc-by-sa, GFDL or LGPL licenses.


The attached list (which offers the frequency per million words) can be used as a “user-defined list” in BPal –note that because of a bug the name of the field will appear as AoA.
