HiActually the list I was looking at had the words I looked up such as home, file and save.
But that is not even relevant , the wording give the option of  ""the most-common form to refer to the concept ""

You can use any list for the context. There is a open source script for building a list from a list of URLS.


You can build an application using the  most-common form to refer to the concept  for this context in navigation element and controls. 


Does that answer the problem? 


All the best

Along the lines Gregg brought up, though I don't have list to check, I suspect that using only the common 3000 words will probably exclude essentially any technical language and many typical and commonly known words used in every software application.

I did word frequency studies in my previous life

Before we decide to adopt any core vocabularies (except at level AAA) we should first convert all of our work into the core vocabulary we are thinking of requiring others to use. I think you will be quite surprised. 

Just to get started — here is a list of most common 3000 words. 
http://www.ef.edu/english-resources/english-vocabulary/top-3000-words/
 (by the way — we would need to rename our guidelines because Web and accessibility (though access is) are not in the 3000 most commonly used words. Also missing caption , programmatic, mobile, and more.

We need a definition for core vocabulary
