Hey all, I'm looking for a free plain text english word list for a word game I'm trying to code. I've tried googleing but I can't seem to find anything that fits my needs.

/usr/share/dict/words on any Linux system; /usr/dict/words on many older UNIX machines.

If you don't have any friends with access to a UNIX or Linux system, and you don't have one yourself, then let's see... I think the dictionary file should be packaged with the "ispell" program. Try googling "ispell" and download the source distribution; it should contain the file you need.

Thank you. I didn't find the one you were recommending, but as is the nature of the Internet that led me to the Guttenberg Project and I ultimatly found what I was looking for here.
