Other general lists NGSL


While lists such as the Academic Word List (AWL) (for academic study) and the General Service List (GSL) (for general vocabulary) are fairly well known, there are other lists of general words which have been developed, some very recently, which are less well known but potentially very useful to students. The following pages give information on some of these lists.
