The Top 100 Positive Words by Frequency



Here is a list of the top 100 positive words in the English language by frequency.

We have had a lot of positive feedback from our article about Positive words to use in your presentation. One question that we were asked a couple of times is “What are the most commonly used positive words?”

We did some research and could not find an easy answer. So we set off on a task of building a word-counting machine. Well, two months later and working through a few weekends, we have come up with our word-counting machine.

So far, we have counted 12.17 million words in over 10,300 books, articles and news stories – all written in English. We have mainly used the British English spellings, but it should be similar for US or American English.

So here is the list of positive words sorted by frequency.
