:memo: A text file containing 479k English words for all your dictionary/word-based projects e.g: auto-completion / autosuggestion
A text file containing over 466k English words.
While searching for a list of english words (for an auto-complete tutorial) I found: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2213607/how-to-get-english-language-word-database which refers to http://www.infochimps.com/datasets/word-list-350000-simple-english-words-excel-readable (archived).
No idea why infochimps put the word list inside an excel (.xls) file.
I pulled out the words into a simple new-line-delimited text file. Which is more useful when building apps or importing into databases etc.
