Introduction

These files contain vocabulary lists of German words, along with their English meanings and pronunciations. The first file contains the most common 3,000 general German words. The other files contain the 1,000 most common words from particular sources that are not in the first list.

So, for example, ich appears in the first list but not the other lists since it is extremely common word in all contexts, but allmählich occurs in the list for Die Vermessung der Welt but not in the first list because it is used frequently in the book, but is not one of the most common 3,000 German words overall.
