 up                                                                  write

An interesting observation:
Notice the word 'mum' is on the list of words above occurring 2 times.
Of course 'mum' is the word people in England call their mother, whereas
'mom' is the same word in the US. Why isn't 'mom' on any of the 9 lists?

The US has 331 million people. The UK has 68 million, Canada has 38 million
and Australia has 26 million people totaling 132 million. So the US has
2.5 times the population of three countries that use 'mum'. 'mom' should
have 2.5 times the useage of 'mum' - right? But it doesn't, at least not
on the 9 lists at the top.

Well, more of the databases making up the 9 lists must have been generated
in England using English sources making up their corpora.

Look at this table of 9 Google search word results in terms of
'hits' or counts:

    Search    Counts in
#   word      millions
1   ma        6890
2   mother    3460     8 of these 9 words aren't
3   mom       3000     are on any of the 9 lists
4   mama      1450     above. The exception is 'mum'.
5   mum        700
6   mommy      661     Why is 'mum', with only 700 million
7   mummy      306     occurrences on 2 of the 9 lists,
8   momma      237     while 'mom' with 3000 million hits
9   mammy       31     isn't on any of the 9 lists?

Why aren't ma, mother and mama not on any of the 9 lists either? There
are 4 words that have way more occurrences than mum that aren't on the
9 lists. Why is this?

Let's face it, google's database is perhaps the largest database ever
created. Containing nearly a trillion web pages. Its counts of words
will surpass any lesser database of 'only' 5 billion words!

Here's the point. If someone is really serious about getting THE REAL
list of the 100 most common English words, they should get it from
google searches. And not from some lesser corpora.

I have already started such a list and it is pretty far along.
This is my new page of 1,500 words!
