SUBTLEX-CH

These are the Chinese word frequencies discussed in the Plos ONE article of Cai & Brysbaert, which you find here. The article explains what is in the files. So, this will not be repeated here.

Online search is now available here.

If you use the frequencies for your research, please refer to us as follows:

  • SUBTLEX-CH-WF.zip : Click here to download the word frequencies
  • SUBTLEX-CH-WF_PoS.zip : Click here to download the word frequencies according to the different syntactic roles of the words

We have now added a file in which the word form frequencies and the PoS frequencies are integrated. This file not only gives the total word form frequency of the word, but also the frequencies of the different parts of speech taken by the word. Furthermore, you get information about the dominant PoS of the word (is it a noun, a verb, an adjective, or another word?), the pinyin notation, and the most frequent English translations (see the file with further information).

  • Click here for the zipped UTF8-file of the combined word frequency and PoS file (this file can easily be opened with most existing software)

Ch_LexD.xls contains the lexical decision data we collected and used in this study (399 words and 394 non-words, based on 12 subjects).
