Summary/Abstract: The lists of available lexicon of each language community sort words according to the availability index, which indicates the degree of ease with which a word comes to mind of the members of a community. However, beyond the hierarchy defined by this index, a qualitative analysis of the word lists shows a very varied lexical composition, which causes at the same time, different degrees of availability for each word. In this paper, taking as example the center of interest 02 ‘Clothes’, from the available lexicon of the province of Córdoba (Bellón Fernández, 2011), I analyze the composition of word lists, using three criteria: a) the value of the index of lexical availability, b) the lexicological description of lexical items, and c) the levels of language (styles).
