    Custom word list

    Ask for a word list from one of the dictionaries I have online. It can be a list of anything I can pull from my dictionaries, including proverbs, animals, or food. If the grammar nerd in you wants it, I can even produce something like a list of diminutive words (if the grammar nerd in you is dying to know all the diminutives I have in my dictionary). Backers will have the chance to discuss with me what they would like depending on what data I have available. It’s limited to 1,000 words.
