I have studied Vietnamese for three years so far, but I cannot express myself, mainly because I haven't exercise much about phrasal expression. For the year 2014, I was trying to maximizing vocabulary capacity. So I think I'm ready to extend my ability to some other aspect of the language.

My next goal is to achieve the ability of expressing phrasal sequence of words.

For this purpose, I need a lot of practice and that's where Duolingo is best fit.

Quite interesting and charming. Duolingo doesn't teach Vietnamese, yet. But I can still learn Vietnamese, using a different interface - learning English thorough Vietnamese. Interesting aspect of Duolingo is that the series of the questions deal with the bidirectional skills. So I am just 'learning English through Vietnamese' and I'm already good at English, and that makes me just learn Vietnamese.

Good.

I just wonder what will come next.

Is it sufficient for me to learn very complex sentence structure of the Vietnamese using this simple trick? I don't know yet, but I think it is possible, as much as I see so far.

If one can learn the most frequent words/expressions first,then that might be an effective learning of Vietnamese. So I collected one year of blog postings from RFA Tieng Viet. (7,058,000 tokens)


vAA.txt (4753 entries) - 1 word expressions


vBB.txt (11814 entries) - 2+ words expressions


vCC.txt (7873 entries) - 3+ words expressions

Just for fun.

As a small private research, I calculated the frequency of words and expressions and here goes the result.


AA.txt  (4177 entries) - one-word list


BB.txt (4278 entries) - 2+(two or more)word list


CC.txt (3667 entries) - 3+(three or more)word list


The English text is randomly collected from various source. Not very balanced and not very clean... but it is sufficient enough for my research. (430,000 spaced tokens)


Just for fun.
