The Dolch Word List is a list of frequently used words compiled by Edward William Dolch, PhD. The list was prepared in 1936. The list was originally published in his book Problems in Reading in 1948. Under the copyright laws in effect during the time of publication, the Dolch word list is out of copyright.
Dolch compiled the list based on children's books of his era. The list contains 220 "service words" that have to be easily recognized in order to achieve reading fluency in English. The compilation excludes nouns, which comprise a separate 95-word list.
Many of the 220 Dolch words canâ€™t be â€œsounded outâ€� using common sound-to-letter implicitphonics patterns and have to be learned by sight; hence the alternative term, â€œsight word." Although the list is divided into grades, for native English speakers, all the words in the Dolch should be mastered by the end of 1st grade.
Houghton Mifflin asked Theodor Geisel to write and illustrate a children's primer using only 225 "new-reader" vocabulary words. The result of that challenge was "The Cat In The Hat." More recently, the new line of TOON Books, innovative graphic early readers, has been using Dolch words in their comics by top authors and cartoonists, and three of the TOON Books have received the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award from the ALA, given to "the most distinguished American book for beginning readers published in English in the United States during the preceding year."

The Academic Word List (AWL) was developed by Averil Coxhead at the School of Linguistics and Applied Language Studies at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. The list contains 570 semantic fields which were selected because they appear with great frequency in a broad range of academic texts. The list does not include words that are in the most frequent 2000 words of English (the General Service List), thus many of the words are specific to academic contexts. However, a significant percentage of the vocabulary contained within the AWL is of general use; it is simply not of high enough frequency to be contained within the General Service List. Words such as area, approach, create, similar, and occur, for example, are in sublist one, yet are words which one could expect to encounter in everyday life, in newspapers, on television, etc. The AWL was primarily made so that it could be used by teachers (especially teachers of English as a Second Language) as part of a programme preparing learners for tertiary level study or used by students working alone to learn the words most needed to study at colleges and universities.
The 570 words are divided into 10 sublists. The sublists are ordered such that the words in the first sublist are the most frequent words and those in the last sublist are the least frequent.

Answers:During my student teaching rotations, I worked with 2nd and 3rd grade kids with severe autism and other communication disabilities. We used laminated boards with different facial expressions. Have you considered drawing different faces instead of or in addition to using words? A picture is worth a thousand words...
Answers:yeah like amanda said, if they are on a separate line, they will be put into separate cells. rather than hitting enter between each word, select the replace function in word found under the edit menu. in the find what box, hit the space bar. click the cursor into the replace with box. under the replace with box, click on more, then click on special, select the manual line break. ^l should appear in the replace with box. click replace all and every space should be turned into a return, placing every word on a seperate line.
Answers:No guaranteed word list, although there may be a list of commonly used words, which is what is included in your test prep book. The GRE is not to test how well you can study some words and know them for the test. It is designed to test you with stuff (or words) you picked up in your college education.
Answers:Google William F. Buckley and read some of his columns and essays. You'll find a surfeit of great words to baffle your opponents, possibly a plethora!
