English Most Common Words 10×10 Blackout


The object of this game is to fill all 100 squares in the grid by naming words (among the top 10K English words) which meet the characteristics listed across the top for the first letter of the word shown in the cells. Only words in the top 10K of English words according to the Corpus of Contemporary English are accepted as answers – the word must also be on the TWL06 Scrabble word list, so proper nouns/slang/etc are usually not accepted.

PLEASE NOTE – the word frequency is based on a lemma word list which combines versions of the same word, ie verb tenses, so for example ‘is’ and ‘was’ are under ‘be’ and plural nouns are under the singular.

Double letter refers to the word having any repeating letter, for example ‘book’ or ‘keep.’

For example, if the cell is ‘A’ and the column is ‘Ends In L’ you can enter ‘all.’

First letters and characteristics are randomized each time the game is loaded. Occasionally a cell may not have a qualifying answer in which case it will appear blank and be a gimme.

hugequiz Premium members will see missed answers in red. Missed answers will be the most popular word which qualifies for that cell.

Enter guesses above to begin.

  1. Please see the notes in the directions regarding the word list being a lemma list, and only the top 10k most common words are accepted – in case you were going to comment on a word not taking 🙂

      1. ah – it’s not the top 100 of verbs which start with E, but rather a top 100 verb (starting with any letter) that starts with E. eat is actually 126th overall – there is one verb starting with E in the top 100 of all verbs.
