The words are at the printer's...

This year we are distributing a list of approximately 850 words, loosely affiliated with the following five categories:
  • The Natural World: words about weather, plants, animals, geography and the physical world.
  • The Social World: words that describe the world as people have modified it.
  • Yes, there IS a word for that: you will not believe the specific words that exist for completely random things.
  • Spell-check's Darlings: is Spell-Check your friend, or your foe? These words will help you find out.
  • Personal Pet Peeves: some words never look right to me, no matter how often I see them. Hopefully you will have better luck with them than I do.

Words will be made available to registered contestants as soon as they are available.
