1024 words

I made this word list to make a utility that converts numbers to short (and memorable) word sequences.

Here are some of the list’s properties:

  • Got a list of English words, sorted by popularity.
  • Kept only 3 to 10 letter words.
  • Removed similar words. All words of equal size differ by at least 2 letters.
  • Removed plurals.
  • Removed verbs.
  • Kept the top 1024 remaining words. So each word can represent 10 bits.

Here it is:
