WORD LISTS FOR SCRABBLE (tm) PLAYERS

I have decided to compile sets of word lists for my own amusement and as a
study aid to improve SCRABBLE (tm) playing skill. All the words in the lists
are contained in the OFFICIAL SCRABBLE PLAYERS DICTIONARY (c) and are
therefore 'legal' plays.

There are many possible applications for these lists. You may print out
portions of any one list or an entire list and memorize parts of it. You may
even use a laptop computer at club play or in a tournament to verify whether
a particularly unusual play is valid. You might use the enclosed EXTRACT.COM
utility to create your own word lists or even to test odd combinations of
letters to list many of the plays possible with them.

I have found, from my own experience, that forcible memorization is
self-defeating. More effective is simply learning by repetition. Just
reviewing and reading over the word lists with NO effort to memorize works
best.

Having spent quite a few hours assembling these lists and writing the
EXTRACT.COM program, I would certainly be gratified to receive any feedback.
Note that I am not specifically asking for contributions, however, if you
wish to send one it would be most gratefully received.

All included word lists and the EXTRACT.COM object code are herewith placed
in the Public Domain. There is no restriction on their use and distribution.

Disclaimer
----------
I make no representation that the word lists are complete and/or
all-inclusive. Any errors present are the result of typing mistakes and it
is the responsibility of the user to verify the validity of the words
included. My own liability is limited to the amount charged for the lists,
that is zero-point-zero.
