I agree with Tran (2007) that categories of CRs in taxonomies should be seen as continua, but I would like to add that it is probably also more appropriate to discuss CRs in terms of overlap between them, and of very complex sociolinguistic representations that need to be uncovered by studying the context in which they occur.

The application of these tags was done as perceived by the students themselves (what terms they felt as common, rare or obsolete) but they consulted Mifsud & Borg‘s Threshold Level list (1997) to define the fundamental terms.
