Irish Word Frequency List
This is a list of approximately 6,500 Irish lemmas (= "words") ordered by frequency of use. It has been extracted from the Irish half of the New Corpus for Ireland and then cleaned up by cross-checking against a large-coverage lexicon (Kevin Scannell's Líonra Séimeantach na Gaeilge) and removing lemmas that don't occur in this lexicon. The result is a list which is "clean" in the sense that it doesn't contain any punctuation, personal names, English words or other noise.

- Column 1 is the lemma's rank: number 1 means the first most frequently used lemma, number 2 the second, and so on.
- Column 2 is the lemma itself.
- Column 3 is the lemma's corpus frequency: a number that says how many times it occurs in the entire corpus.
- Column 4 is the lemma's window size: it tells you that the lemma occurs on average once in this number of words.
