This data set contains British-English ratings of meaning frequencies for 100 homonyms, i.e., words with multiple unrelated meanings (e.g., “money/river bank”). The homonyms were carefully selected based on linguistic principles, dictionary entries, and subjective ratings, and were validated for future studies examining meaning-frequency effects on homonym processing. Meaning frequencies were rated by 100 native British-English speakers (living throughout the UK) using the eDom norming procedure. The norms are available at
