The list don’t include interjections (like ah, duh, gosh, ha, jeez, mm-hmm, oh, oops, ouch, and wow), names, titles (like Mr., Mrs., Ms., ma’am, and sir), and numbers. Units of measure be in metric.


The remaining 10% consist of a huge number of words, and many of them be not useful.

For this website, the following extra words be useful:

adjective, adverb, auxiliary


compile, consonant, continuous, corpus




interjection, introductory

learner, loudly



participle, password, plural, pronoun
