Ascension (Posted on 2004-02-08) Difficulty: 3 of 5
  1. What is the longest word in the English language in which all the letters are arranged in alphabetical order?

  2. How about reverse alphabetical order?

  3. What is the last word, alphabetically, whose letters are all in alphabetical order?

  4. What is the first word whose letters are all in reverse alphabetical order?

Very interesting... I'd be interested to see the "words.txt" file that you were using here. Does it contain every single word in the English language?

Even if it doesn't could I by any chance request a copy? - no end of word puzzle solving fun could be had with it!

Peace,
Rawlyn.

p.s. if you're willing to let me see, could you send to rawlyn(at)hotmail(dot)com - thanks :)
