Expurgated Words

The following list of words are valid in OWL2, but omitted from OSPD4 because they were deemed to be "offensive".

Note that OSPD only contains words up to 8 letters long, plus their extensions, so words whose root is 9+ letters long would never be printed in OSPD in the first place. So, those longer words have been found by hand and are presumed to be expurgated should a "Long List" version of OSPD ever be created.

  • Words in [BRACKETS] are related acceptable words that have a "non-offensive" definition.
  • {CURLY BRACES} indicate words that were printed in OSPD3 but removed from OSPD4 (newly expurgated).

Updates to this page:

Updated 10 February 2010: Added two new 9-letter words (and their extensions).

Updated 19 August 2009: Ross Brown pointed out several words that used to be in OSPD3, but are now expurgated. They have been added here. Also use {} to highlight newly expurgated words.

Note: this list was corrected 7 November 2007 (added a few words had been omitted and some expurgated words that are longer than 8 letters). Thanks Gary Russell and Mike Baron!

Thanks to Steven Alexander for his list of expurgated words from OSPD3.
