New Academic Word List (NAWL) Finder and Sorter
EAPFoundation.com offers a free electronic tool for finding, highlighting, and sorting academic words within texts. Their word source is the New Academic Word List or NAWL, a recent update of the Academic Word List or AWL. There is also the option of creating a simple, head word, or word family gapfill, where the found academic words become blanks in the text.
- Enter or copy and paste the text into the box.
- Click submit.
- The text will appear with highlighted academic words.
- Those same words are then sorted by frequency.
