The Russian Vocabulary List of the 1000 Most Common Words

Russian is a Slavic language, so a majority of the most common words are of Slavic origin. Some of these are similar to words found in other Slavic languages such as Polish, Czech and Bulgarian.

Among the most frequently used Russian words there are also some loanwords from non-Slavic languages such as Latin, English and French.

49% of the Russian vocabulary words in this list are nouns, verbs account for 18% and adjectives 15%.

At the top of this Russian vocabulary frequency list are several prepositions and conjunctions. Despite their high ranks, prepositions and conjunctions as a whole account for only 3% and 1% of the 1000 most common Russian words.

The words near the top of this vocabulary frequency list tend to be shorter than the words further down. In Russian (as in many languages) the length of words is inversely correlated to how frequently they are used. This phenomenon is called the “brevity law” or “Zipf's law of abbreviation” by linguists.

This list of the most frequent Russian vocabulary words was created by processing a large number of documents written in Russian. As Russian is a highly inflected language, a process called lemmatization was applied to convert the words to their uninflected (canonical) form.

Here is the list of the 1000 most common Russian words:

  1. в
    [preposition]
    (at)

    Definite and indefinite articles (such as the English words 'the', 'a', 'an') do not exist in the Russian language. As a result, the most frequent Russian words are prepositions and conjunctions.

  2. и
