Consolidated Word List Errata

NOTE: I HAVE EDITED THE CONSOLIDATED WORD LIST FILES ON THIS SITE TO WHERE IT NO LONGER HAS ANY OF THE FOLLOWING ERRORS.  HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE USING A DIFFERENT FILE TO STUDY THE CWL, THIS LIST WILL STILL BE HELPFUL.

There are a number of errors in the CWL (understandable, given that there are 23,413 words in it).  In the Preface, it says that some of the words may not be in the dictionary, and this was indeed the case.  I have assumed that there are no duplicates in the CWL when I was searching for what the correct spelling is, so no word under “Correct Spelling” is already in the CWL.  Without further ado, here is a list of all of its misspellings/non-words.

  1. The consolidated list is very helpful no doubt. Taking the effort to fix the errata is even more helpful. It takes a lot of effort. Thank you!
