For the entire BNC you can query "Phrases in English"
for frequency lists by word class.
specify 1-grams and choose the appropriate POS (word class) filter.

You can also get total frequencies by word class with the POS-gram query.

Good luck,
Bill Fletcher

Subject: [Corpora-List] Obtaining wordlists by word-class using Wordsmith

Dear colleagues of Corpora-List:

I am a PhD student studying word-formation by means of the BNC Sampler and
Wordsmith Tools 4.0.

I need to obtain wordlists from this corpus for each of the major
word-classes, but I am unable to do so. I have consulted the Wordsmith Tools
manual, but I have not managed to work it out. Would anyone in the list
familiar with this software be so kind to indicate me how I could do this?
Any reference to webpages is welcome.

Thank you very much,
Jesús Fernández.
