Quick, what's the most common noun?

If you had to guess the most commonly used noun in the English language, what would it be? See the comments section below for Oxford dictionary's answer.

Time's up! I hope you had a good time. We'll have to do this another time. By the way, do you have time to give me the time? Wow, 2007's time has nearly come? Time sure does fly.

That's pretty interesting. My guess was "I" or "me" or maybe even "you." The Oxford Dictionary only conducted research on written language. I would expect that their findings would be different if they could somehow factor in spoken language.

By the way, I found your site from Rocket in the Bocket. Happy New Year.

What's more interesting is that there's a difference between nouns and pronouns :-)

Thanks to Rocket in the Bocket for passing on traffic. Nice.

Too bad they're no longer...

Too bad Rocket didn't pass along traffic that reads more carefully.
