High Frequency Words (HFW)

High Frequency Words (HFW) - the most common words in running text that, when read instantly, assist with fluent reading (for example, a, the, of). There are two types of high frequency words: "flash words," which are decodable, and "heart words," which are partly or not at all decodable.

Reading Universe is made possible by generous support from Jim & Donna Barksdale, the AFT, the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation, and three anonymous donors.
