AAC Core Word List (see comments below)

  • Column B shows the rank of each listed word based on several factors. These factors include the number of core vocabulary lists a specific word appears in, whether the word is listed in Sally Clendon's research indicating the 150 most frequently used words in writing samples of students in grades K-4, and the U score.
  • Column C shows the U score for each word. This number is based on how frequently the word is found in written English and how widely dispersed the word is among grade levels (K-12) and across subjects. The higher the U score, the more frequently the word occurs in written English and the more widely dispersed the word is.
  • *Note-This vocabulary list is based on ongoing research. Therefore, there will likely be some changes in the current draft.
