Since I''m kind of boring sometimes, I like word games. So I wrote one. The problem is, I''m having trouble locating a resource that contains a good-sized list of words that I can use. I don''t want to have to make one myself, as I''m sure that''s already been done. If you know of a website that provides text lists of a useful sort, please let me know.

Just open the html of a porn site -- they usually have every dam word in the dictionary to get people to come (no pun intended).

If you are willing to accept a large attachment and can wait about an hour until I get home I can send you the word list I use, its a plain text file with the words seperated by carriage returns.

Edit: File has just over 109000 words and is 287KB zipped (1.1MB unzipped). Email me if you want a copy.

/usr/dict/words on any linux system is a text file of english words:

[xxxxx@xxxxx test]$ cat /usr/dict/words | wc -l
45402

It has, however, only 45402 dictionary words, no slang.
