Magic Words International undertook an extensive worldwide literature search of English word lists and word frequency research, to source the highest quality and most current data available.

Many high frequency word lists exist, often sourced from publishers who only include the books from their own reading schemes. These lists, sourced from a small sample of books are of limited value, and hold little appeal to most teachers, as they transfer poorly to other reading schemes and indeed to general reading.

Magic Words International conducted a meta- analysis of the research into word frequencies of the data collected from around the world. This resulted in an extensive study of the research, development of a robust selection criteria and a meticulous academic examination to ascertain the most statistically significant set of words.

This rigorous study produced a unique compilation of words with the highest statistical significance for anyone learning to read in English.

This powerful list provides superior educational outcomes and is now used in schools around the world and in over 80% of Australian Primary Schools.

Magic Words International was able to group these words into levels (colours), based upon the statistical analysis of frequency of each word, to provide the greatest efficacy in teaching.
The educational value of this unique compilation of words, in this order, and frequency, surpasses other lists published to date. ​The M100W - Magic Words materials are copyright protected.
