International English wordlist (DOS format) A list of 109582 English words compiled and corrected in 1991 from lists obtained from the Interociter bulletin board. The original file said that the list came from Public Brand Software. This word list includes inflected forms, such as plural nouns and the -s, -ed and -ing forms of verbs.
