    do you only want the words, or their definitions as well? and what file type?

    some entropy with that sink? entropysink.com

    A standard English dictonary is a lot different then a standard Chinese dictonary.

    I had to use a dictionary for a boggle game I made last semester and used the scrabble word list with two letter words minimum. I uploaded it here if you want it: http://creativeoutlet.thejefffiles.com/cs301/

    I will take it off in a couple hours, so let me know when you got it (it's 1.66MB).

    If you want a list of words, without meanings, check out:
    /usr/share/dict/words

    I was searching around for some C files and I found this already-parsed C file with A LOT of words:

    I know this is old, but creating a new topic seemed so illogical.

    Nobody's looking for it anymore...so your post is also a bit illogical
