A sample of fifty English texts were used to evaluate three models: (i) the long known empirical "Heap's Law", (ii) a model based on Bernoulli word-selection with Zipfian word frequency, and (iii) Bernoulli selection with Zipf-Mandelbrot frequency. The accuracies of these three models optimally fitted to parsed data were compared, as were their relative abilities to predict vocabulary growth.
