Five-Letter Words

Commuting by bus I sometimes entertain myself by creating lists of five-letter words. This is a list in which the first letter of each word is ‘a’ and the second letter ranges from ‘a’ through ‘z’.

If there are slots in a list that I can’t fill with words out of my head I resort to a dictionary collection to find, for example, that an aalii is a tree that grows in Hawaii where there are ample vowels to sustain it. However, there are many times when even dictionaries are no help, as in the following list in which which the first letter of each word is ‘s’ and the second letter ranges from ‘a’ through ‘z’.

There is room in the English language for more words.
