Therefore, both the frequency and the variety Token  &  Type  of  Every  Five  Years   have increased from every five years. !

Analysis of Words of Overall Years APPLIED  LINGUISTICS:  FINAL  PROJECT     As a result of examining the ranking of English words of the overall years, all the words have their alternative Korean words. The very top four words were all Token   you, me, it. Exclamation, such as pronouns: I, of  Upper  Ranking  Words   oh, uh, huh, ah, also appeared on the upper rank. Words that belong to the “love” category also came up on the upper rank. These words contain love, girl, baby, boy, heart.
