I have problems with such lists even though I have one too. Nova for instance has a lot of inflections that many lgs would make words. There is always a certain amount of arbitrariness both in mine and in every other attempt that I have seen. Still, FWIW, here is the URL for the combined BASIC and Essential World English Vocabularies; There is also my Nova morpheme list; It has 643 morphemes for word building, 154 particles, and 126 inflections. It also indicates the arbitrariness well. I have a lot of terms which no natlang would have (scents for instance and Nowan animal species). -- Brad Coon Somedays when you wake up, its just not worth chewing through the leather straps.
