I'm surprised "ship" isn't among the most commonly used words in English. Where do these statistics come from?

:It makes sense that "capsule" and "spaceship" (as one word) are not in the "ten hundred" most-common words (Really, "thousand" isn't on this list either?), but not "fuel" and/or "tank"?  People (context: US Midwesterner) talk about filling up their cars all the time!  I'd like to see the original 1,000-word list. (Also: "Up Goer"?  Well, it goes up -- that's about ALL it does.  Makes sense, I guess.) --BigMal27 // [[Special:Contributions/192.136.15.149|192.136.15.149]] 13:13, 12 November 2012 (UTC)
