Which words are the most commonly used in the English language?

Which words do you use most frequently?



There are about 250,000 words in the English language and as many communications styles as there are people on earth. So many opportunities to be creative or to go astray. There are no absolutes – no best writer, no best speaker, no best style – and no best words. But there are principles of English usage that are generally persuasive, and misusage patterns that are generally ineffective.

Professional success. Teamwork. Teaching and learning. Partnering, parenting, and growing our networks of friends and family. Effective communications are critical to all these endeavors. Our perspective in attacking a problem, telling a story, listening to someone else’s position, or writing a message biases our understanding of the solution, the moral, or the point. If we can have empathy for the viewpoints of others, we can connect and collaborate more effectively.
