To the Reader:
My primary reason for preparing this list was because I was
writing computer software and needed a list of short words
for screen menus like file, edit, and help, but these had
already been taken, and it wasn’t always easy to come up with
a good menu word on the spur of the moment.
Then, like many fun tasks, I just got into trying to get them
all. And here they are.
So if you need some four letter words for your work, look
thru these, and use them freely.
A digital file of these lists can be downloaded from our web
site: www.ekatetra.com Use it as you need. Please attribute
your source as The Book of Four-Letter Words, George
Forester at Ekatetra.com if you reproduce the list.
Note: These words have been assembled from a variety of dictionaries,
thesaurus, and word lists. A dedicated effort has been made to list all fourletter words used in American English, but I can make no quarantee that
it is a complete list. Words are added every day to the language.
Certain 4-letter words have been excluded from the list based on the following criteria: plurals (added s) of 3-letter words like pens; plural 4-letter
words like mice of other words.
Words like bats and digs have been included because they are not plurals
but have other meanings, such as crazy and lodgings. Past tense of words
like sing (sang, sung) are included in the list. The primary screening device
has been: “Does the word have a separte definition in an unabridged
dictionary?” If so, it has probably been included.
This work was initially done in 1992 and was reviewed with minor corrections in 2008. George Forester
