August 22, 2013 What kinds of words make up The Beatles’ Abbey Road album? The infographic above was created from a corpus linguistics study conducted by Voxy that examined the 17 songs in the album. The analysis measured the album’s most-used words, words per song, and percentage of different words per song. The majority of words in Abbey Road are also frequently used in English, meaning that the album is a perfect tool for ESL teachers.
