Thread: Word Training: German words are overwhelming

I don't know if it's just me. In Word Training, Language / Collection, I have selected:

cw -cw Abbreviations
cw -cw Abbreviations (Q codes)
de- Deutsch Allgemein
de- Deutsch Amateurfunkbegriffe
it- Italiano
nl- Nederlands


I expect there to be a mix of all choices, or at least a random selection, but German words are overwhelming, followed by English and Dutch words. I rarely get Italian words. I don't remember ever getting a CW abbreviation.

This is the result of my last try:

pummeliges
zoelle
jongelui
martin
geest
zuechtet
physical
folders
nebenstrassen
damaligen
tarief
teacher
greeted
betreffen
beschraenkung
schrift
severely
identisch
opzoeken
gekennzeichnet
aerosols
doller
schoensten
holzoefen

Isn’t the reason that everything is mixed in one pool, and then it picks randomly from the pool... And with an overweight of German words, they simply come more often...??

Yes, that's exactly the reason.

I could modify the algorithm to pick equal (or nearly equal) amounts of words from the pools that are selected.

The German word list has 17k entries, and is by far the largest on the site.

73

That would be greatly appreciated.

I have tested it and now it works as expected. Thanks Fabian!
