Wordcount is, according to its “About” page:

WordCount™ is an artistic experiment in
the way we use language. It presents the 86,800 most frequently
used English words, ranked in order of commonality. Each word is
scaled to reflect its frequency relative to the words that precede
and follow it, giving a visual barometer of relevance. The larger
the word, the more we use it. The smaller the word, the more uncommon
it is.

“Accordion” is the 31,327th most-used word, just behind “prewar” and ahead of “finery”.
