As an avid Scrabble player (and writer/editor using scientific writing
standards), I can attest that I have never seen a dictionary or
word-list that is truly comprehensive of the English language.
The spellchecker I use for an app I created for work contains 174,000
words, and still frequently misses words that are a regular part of
If you think about it, there really is not one single standard set of
English words. Authorities in various specialties (such as medicine,
chemistry, and presumably computer science) frequently create words that
no one outside of a particular group of people would ever use.
For example, 'legionellosis' is a well known disease not recognized by
my word list. In broadcast news jargon, 'sot' is an acronym-become-word
that is very frequently used.
The scrabble dictionary lists 'xi', 'xu', 'aalii', 'eaux', 'qurush',
'qanat', 'qat', 'qoph', 'cwm', 'suq', 'ai','ae','aa', and 'oe' as words!
