Most Common English Words (no. 10)
“I” is the tenth most common English word. It is a pronoun and, unlike the other words before it, it can only be used one way: as the subject of a verb. Since there is not much to write about it, I’m going to use it with the nine words I’ve already written about.
- I like you.
- Am I invited to the party?
- I saw the Crown Prince of Japan in Kyoto. (the)
- I am the middle child. (be)
- From September 12 to 25, I will be out of the country. (to)
- I lost the lead of my pencil. (of)
- I went to Osaka and shopped and shopped until I spent all my money. (and)
- I read a story about a prince yesterday. (a)
- In the morning I usually feel lazy. (in)
- I feel so lazy that I can’t get up to eat breakfast. (that)
- I’ve had mumps twice. (have)
In the next blog I will take a break from writing about the most common words in English because Inari-san requested me to write about my opinion of the Philippines and Japan. I will do my best to answer his questions so please read again tomorrow if you’re interested.
