    When running a WordNet query
    "wn frog -hypen"
    it returns 3 senses <i> ordered by estimated frequency </i>

    This information does seem to be in the data files (I think it is the last column in index.sense and its also in cntlist).

    Is there any way to return this frequency for a given sense?

      The synsets of an IndexWord are ordered by estimated frequencey. So IndexWord.getSense(1) will return the most frequent sense of the word, getSense(2) will return the second most frequent use, etc.

      I also have a need to get the actuall tag count.  Did you find any way to get this count via JWNL?  Is this a needed enhancement?

      I'm in the same position.  Does anyone know how to get a tag count or estimated frequency?
