I'm trying to find a Chinese (and also French) word list, similar to this one for English: https://www.mit.edu/~ecprice/wordlist.10000

All I'm finding are 100-500 word lists. Anyone know a comprehensive list?

The MDBG dictonary has a downloadable text file in csv format containing 200,000+ Chinese words in alphabetical order. There is also a (smaller) version with French word definitions of Chinese words.


I didn't find any ready-made word list either, but here you can generate a word list from the corpus.

At first just adjust an options and click Make word list:

Then you can save a word list to CSV, TSV or XML by choosing Save on the left-side menu:
