Most common word lists?

Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone has a list of the 1,000 or 2,000 most commonly used Danish words (spoken preferrably, but I would take the most commonly used written words too if you can find it). I've found a few websites that claim to have these, but upon closer inspection, it's clear that they took the list of 1,000 most commonly used English words and just translated it into Danish (otherwise, why would "er" show up twice for "is" and for "are", instead of having a listing like "er - am/is/are"?)

Here is a list of the 3000 most common words (no translation though): http://www.copenhagencast.com/learningcenter/3000mostfrequentDanishwords.pdf


That's great, thank you! Too bad they made the pdf an image so you can't copy/paste the words. Oh well!


typing each out will help with memorization :)
