Hello all,

Are there any good wordlists out there that are in useful formats that could be very useful to a conlanger? Thematic, frequency, pdf, ect.? Please post them here.

Thanks,
The Conlanger

Zompist's Lexipedia is a pretty handy resource for it. I have it on my Kindle. Otherwise, Swadish lists are pretty good too.

Aside from word lists, the best thing I can recommend is work on derivational morphology fairly early on, and when you coin a word, figure out how it can be extended into other words. Likewise, when you're translating an English word, use that English word and find all derivations of it and figure out how those plan out in your language. Not all words are derived the same, and though they may be derived in English doesn't mean they should be derived in your own.

Creating lists of your own is also a good idea. Find a field that seems interesting, such as farming or cooking or the clothing a person wears, and create lists from that to translate concepts.
