Thanks to New England Patriots fans, "goat" would not have made the list if not for Tom Brady.

I was surprised 'spider' was not in this list.. Especially looking at half a dozen of the ones which actually make it.

But cow is a specific female animal.

It's a confusing thing, but "cow" is used both to refer to a female individual (adult who has borne a calf), but also to generic individuals as well. Think about it, what would you call a single individual of that species if you didn't know its sex?

do you think some of the words like bug or fish or fly appear in the list because they are commonly used as verbs as well? or is the list specific to most commonly used nouns?

The source lists part of speech, so the word fly would be listed twice, once as a verb and once as a noun. We only counted the nouns.

Not sure of the source - but bat should be on here.

OK - I checked your source and bat (n) appears as the 3727th most common word and should therefore be on this quiz. :)
