A word-frequency list from some University of Manchester course. I don't know what the original sample is - possibly a newspaper. The words which have only one example entry are not going to be reliably in every English sample, and even the 2's are suspect there. Too much source sensitivity.
Notice how the top half of the list (at the link, not this list, you chowderhead) are all Germanic words, while French and Latin words predominate in the lower half.
