I'm making a word game (scrabulous-type) in flash named 'Spellbound' that checks the dictionary (TWL based) if the word is meaningful or not.
It uses a three-dimensional array object 'dictionary' containing a total of 178,691 elements.
dictionary = "AA"
dictionary = "ZOOGEOGRAPHICAL"
It uses binary (logarithmic) search algorithm for arrays larger than 32 elements in length and linear search algorithm for the rest.
Hats off to wiki! [link]
