Vocabulary Profilers break texts down by word frequencies in the language at large, as opposed to in the text itself. Most of the English Vocabprofilers on this site are based on Laufer and Nation's Lexical Frequency Profiler, and divide the words of texts into either first and second thousand levels, academic words, and the remainder or 'offlist,' or the BNC based 20 levels plus off-list. [Since this was written, several more frameworks have taken the field - see VP-Compleat.] VP is used for many research and teaching purposes (like matching text to learner via Levels Test   (click here to see how).
