Expanding on the Dolch sight words, Dr. Edward B. Fry in 1996 created a new list of high frequency words (“Fry Words”). The Fry instant words are the most common words used in English ranked by order of frequency.
Dr. Fry found that 25 words make up 1/3 of all words published, 100 words make up ½ of all words published and 300 words make up 65% of all written material. These high frequency words should be recognized instantly by young readers.
The Fry words are helpful for adults learning English as a second language as well as for children.
