The creator of the program ''Clozemaster'' provided his frequency list for Spanish when asked on reddit (among a couple others). I figured it may be useful to others.

http://pastebin.com/3GF89XF1

Let me know if this link dies out, I have it saved.

In one of his replies he explains basically how he creates these lists.

''......The frequency lists used for most languages are primarily from https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktiona ... ency_lists like u/tomavagyok mentioned, modified in an attempt to remove names, places, garbage characters, etc........''
