Types of Lexis

There are two types of lexis:
Low Frequency Lexis (LFL),
and High Frequency Lexis (HFL)

LFL are words that aren't commonly used. For example, LFL for a British person:
Hot, Sunny, and Happy.
LFL for a normal person:
Established, ought, lexis, demographic & abundence.

HFL are words that are often used, such as;
Is, the, and, but and because.
(I suppose HFL for British people would be:
Tea, rain and annoyed.)
