Title: A Brief Update on NGSL Wordlist Research

Abstract: Browne and Culligan have published 5 open-source, corpus-derived word lists to help meet the needs of second language learners of English. The NGSL, NGSL-S and NAWL were published in 2013 and the TSL and BSL were published in 2016. This presentation will introduce some of the additional work on the lists, tools that use the lists and published research where the lists have been a prominent component of the study.
