looking for a simple words dictionary list

Posted 18 November 2013 - 03:51 PM

Hello everyone,
Am working on a little game similar to Z-type, and i have finished the base game mechanic and now am working on how to generate random english words f and for that i need a text file full of words, i have already found one here :
http://ftp.sunet.se/...guages/English/
but it's somehow a "full" dictionary and i am looking for something more simple than that (just to keep the words in the game easy to read and write)
for example :

Quote

budge
budged
budger
budgeree
budgereegah
budgerigar
budgerigars
budgerow
budgers
budges
budget
budgetary
budgeted
budgeteer
budgeter
budgeters
budgetful
budgeting
budgets
budgie
budgies
budging


i don't want to have all the budg**** words in the game, let's say that i just need the 1st 3 ones (i never heard of some of these words lol )
maybe i would try to write an algorithm able to do that for me, but before that i want to ask you if you know some place where i can download a full list of words but just simple words.
PS :
by "simple" i mean "most common" or "most used" words, not small words

thank you very much and have a nice day

so.. does searching "common dictionary words" not provide what you are asking?

Linux has a built in dictionary. Check out /usr/share/dict/ or /var/lib/dict/
