Not a long word list — the right word list

Our word lists were developed after a very careful analysis of words appearing in sophisticated periodicals from across the world and from classic literature. We've been careful to add words that are important to an educated vocabulary and specifically stayed away from exotic words. Our goal is to make you a more effective communicator. It’s easy to create a gigantic word list — it’s hard to create the right word list.
