	abstract     = {Frequency lists and/or lexicons contain information about the words and their statistics. They tend to find their “readers” among linguists, lexicographers, language teachers. Making them available in electronic format helps to expand the target group to cover language engineers, computer programmers and other specialists working in such areas as information retrieval, spam filtering, text readability analysis, test generation, etc. 
This article describes a new freely available electronic frequency list of modern Swedish that was created in the EU project KELLY. We describe the state of affairs for Swedish frequency lexicons; provide a short description of the KELLY project; mention the corpus the list has been derived from. Further, we dwell on the type of information the list contains, describe shortly the steps for list generation; provide information on the coverage and some other statistics over the items in the list. Finally, some practical information on the license for the Swedish Kelly-list distribution is given; potential application areas are suggested; and future plans for its expansion are mentioned. We hope that with some publicity we can help this list find its users.
