A plain list in .txt format of commonly-used nouns in the English language. Thousands of entries long!


What we have here is a list of the most commonly-used nouns (and only nouns) used in English, the largest list of its kind freely available on this great internet (currently storing 2336 nouns). It is by no means complete (about 50,000 are unlisted), but it compiles the most common nouns in use, including months, days, star signs, places, clothing, raw materials, countries and common nationalities, professions, transportation, matter, food, education, common names and of course many and sundry objects.

What do I use it for?

Whatevs, really! Use it to compile flashcards to teach English to kids, fashion some sort of board game with it, or use it in software you’re programming, as I do (also in this).

Can I share this?

Yes, give this list to whomever you want. Please leave the list plain (as in, noun entries only, no identifying marks, disclaimers etc) for easy use.

That's all there is; there isn't any more.
