New Academic Word List vocabulary not in the English Vocabulary Profile

Until June 2021, the English Grammar Profiler tool that automatically tags grammar and vocabulary used both the EVP and the AWL for the same words which was making level prediction less accurate.  Today we have removed the AWL tagging to allow for the full EVP to highlight its levels across vocabulary more accurately.  Instead of abandoning any academic tagging of the text, we have decided to form a list of all the vocabulary that is not in the EVP, but is in the NAWL.   We found that about 50% of the NAWL is not covered by the EVP.  The list we came up with was the NAWL first separated by the Vocabkitchen tool and then refined for a few missing points in TextInspector.  There are some errors in both those tools when it comes to differentiation of British vs American spelling too. Finally, some of the plural forms are incredibly rare. The final 1036 words are listed below (but have not been verified directly to not exist in the EVP).  We will be slowly linking items to examples of their usage elsewhere.
