I'm doing my own (very small) corpus analysis, including a word frequency list and would like to compare the top, say, 30 words with other such lists. I know that there are things like the GSL/NGSL, the Leipzig-Jakarta list or the Swadesh list. But the latter two are concerned with a different question (stability of words across time) and the former two are intended for study more than for research. Also, my own corpus consists of spoken language (transcripts of videos to be exact) which can be very different from written language.
So my question has three parts:
Is there a collection of word frequency lists (top 100 words would be enough) of a number (>10) of languages anywhere?
Has anyone tried to translate a list of such lists into one common language and readjusted the frequencies?
If the latter exists, how accurately does it approach "the top 100 words spoken by all speakers of all of the included languages" in your opinion? (I realize things get lost in translation quickly, but the lists would be likely to include things like "I/you/we/they", "to say/to come/to go", "home/work/school" which are quite universal as concepts).
