Pretty neat.. ranks words according to how frequently they're used.. says 86,800 words in the archive.

Type in some pretty obscure words, it's surprising what you find (and what you don't find). Even has some names and other proper nouns.

FYI:

Tiananmen Square is a place in Beijing where in the spring of 1989, Chinese students and workers collected for the largest nonviolent protest in China's history. On June 3rd, after martial law had been in effect for 13 days, troops were ordered to take back Tiananmen Square from the protesters at any cost. The troops opened fire at any protesters attempting to stop them, as well as many bystanders. The next morning at around 5 am, the remaining thousands of protesters cleared the square.. at gunpoint.

Google it :D

It found "thermoplastic" but not "elastomeric"?!?:tongue: It did find "rectilinear" and "interpenetration" though.

Sex = 1236
