I'm looking for a French lexicon that I can pass on to my pupils who have been asked to program a French-language "Hangman" game.
I have found a lexicon on the Internet but it is way too large (≈ 129K words), with many rare words that most teenagers don't know, and listing plurals of nouns and adjectives, as well as conjugated verbs, which are great for Scrabble but not suitable for Hangman. I just need 'Common French words'.
Admittedly, I don't know exactly what I mean by 'Common'. Perhaps the 5K most common words? Or the 10K?
