TEN MOST COMMON ENGLISH WORDS

Here's a new mnemonic device by Peter Hobbs for recalling the ten most common words in written English (in strict order of their frequency, with greatest first). Imagine a crossword question being read out as "the something of something and something, a something to something in, is you!", and someone replying:

"The __ of __ and __ (a __ to __ in) is you ? - That it ??"
