Word usage

I remember a website I used a few months ago that had comprehensive data on which words and used most frequently in English. However, I can't find it again - and Google's not helping as the search terms are rather generic. Does anyone know the site in question, or similar sites? Thanks.

    Was it this? I think someone posted that in Linksville a long time ago. It was more than just a couple months, though.

    I call bullshit on this site.

    There's no way that "Conquistador" (the lowest ranking word on this list) is less frequently used than such gems as "Ixmar," "Ignimbrites" and "Ulsterbus."

    Edit: I had a video game geek moment when I saw word 80450

    Well, it's all to do with what sources you choose to make your word list from. E.g. they use the British National Corpus so it probably is true.

    The only time I use charming is when I say "Charming as fuck".

    Unfortunately, western cultures frown upon arranged marriages, so the vast majority of people have to take risks in order to get into relationships.
