Dear colleagues, We are delighted to announce that Version 2 of MultiLingProfiler <https://www.multilingprofiler.net/> is now live. MultiLingProfiler is an online, open access vocabulary profiling tool for LOTE developed at the University of York in partnership with Prof. Laurence Anthony (Waseda University) and funded by the Department for Education.

Following our most recent round of updates, users can now use the tool to:

- obtain text coverage information using lists of the 1,000, 2,000,

3,000, 4,000, and 5,000 most frequent word families in French, German and


- deselect grammar features (e.g., tenses, case forms) to reflect

learners’ grammatical knowledge in the profile

- add words and word families to embedded word lists using the 'add to

list' function

- profile texts with a POS-annotated custom list (using TreeTagger tags)

- download statistical information about the words, word families and

multiword units in your text(s), including flemma-based frequency lists,

multi-level frequency-band profiles, and type/token ratios

- edit texts directly in the profiling window and copy the results into

another program

- explore the 5,000 most frequent word families in each language using

the ‘Word Families’ tab

- profile texts using word lists aligned with National Centre for

Excellence for Language Pedagogy (NCELP) schemes of work up to the end of

Term 2 of Year 9 (teachers following the syllabi can use the tool to

ascertain which words in a text have been taught at any given point in the

school year).
