The Corncob list of more than 58 000 English words

Last Updated on


THIS list was compiled
by merging different word-lists. The British spelling was preferred and
American versions deleted. We have used it in crossword compiling
(together with a programme) with much success. A few word groups (e.g.
RUN_OF_THE_MILL, written RUNOFTHEMILL) are therefore also included. In
all hyphenated words the hyphen was deleted to form one word.

There are two versions of the list — the one all CAPS and the
other one all lower case (even for normally capitalised words) — both
in txt format. Both will open in new windows if these links are clicked
