Most common wordsFriday, 24th July 2020 ◆ Schedule railway to leave stream (4) Linguistics
I've picked three works of fiction which are freely available from Project Gutenberg, and extracted the 10 most common 6+ letter words from each.
Using only that list of words, can you guess what the novel is? Some may be more obvious than others!
War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy
A Study in Scarlett, Arthur Conan Doyle
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll
Without the 6+ letter restriction, there are too many basic words (a, the, he, is) for a human to work out the novel.
