We've just completed the BNC2000 list of words! Last definition to be completed was "witness".--Brett 19:45, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

As below, the completed list is in fact just the second group of 1000 headwords, not the full list of related words referenced above. None of the full lists are complete as of the date of this comment. --Cromwellt|talk|contribs 09:51, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

We've just completed the BNC1000 list of words! Last definition to be completed was "therefore".--TBC 07:24, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

Just to clarify, the above statement refers to the headwords from the BNC1 list. The words under those headwords (admittedly a lot more than 1000 words) are still far from complete as of the date of my comment. --Cromwellt|talk|contribs 09:39, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
