Could anyone tell me how i could read in an entire list of words into one entire string?
Or how do i read in a list of words into a hash set? Because i think that might be quicker?
I'd be grateful if you could give me a code snippet too please.

sorry for multiple posts, but
what's the fastest possible way i could read in a large list of words from 2 files,[ do a search - have that myself] and print out the results?

The quickest (and probably simplest) thing is to use the java.util.Properties class which is a descendant of Map. This means you can create a file of name-value pairs and read the whole file into memory with a call to Properties.load().
Hope this helps
