(I couldn't find an appropriate thread for this, so I'm posting it in a new topic so someone can merge it in the right place.)
So I found this page recently, it contains about every word in the English language.

"mcmc" is not a word.
"gpx" is not a word.
"cbgb" is definitely not a word.


"Google" is one of the words, and "Futurama" is in there too. Heh.

Can't speak for the other two, but CBGB is a word. It's a rock club in New York. Look it up.
"Country, Bluegrass, and Blues"

Lol i so clever.

I remember there used to be a site where you could do a regular expression search to find words you wanted in the English language, and I liked it, but now it's gone. Now that someone published this list, it wouldn't be too hard to write a new one.

Looks like file permissions to me!

File is a symbolic link. Root has read, write, execute; Group has read, write, execute; and User has read, write, excute.

...Is that a word? I can't tell.


By the way, this list fails for not having antidisestablishmentariaism in it.

List One also fails for not having the epic word axolotl in it.

List Two does, though, so it's automatically better.

It seems to exclude all the most common words. Still has more real words then the other list.

It doesn't have the word "grumblesome". It's a word I just made up about two nights ago, but it's more of a word than a lot of the stuff in there.
