5 Letter Words
There are many four letter words, but few three letter words, and even fewer two letter words. But what about five letter words? How many five letter words are there? It may seem like it’s impossible to figure out how many five letter words there are without going through all the possibilities one by one, but it turns out that there’s a way to figure this out faster using some basic math skills. Let’s see how!
A brief introduction to five letter words
The English language has a lot of five letter words. In fact, there are 8996 five-letter words according to the Adversarial word selection task on Stack Exchange, an online community for developers. That’s a lot of words! And that’s not even including all the six and seven letter words.
Just looking at five letter words, there are some common patterns. For example, the most frequent letters in order are E, T, A, O, I, N, S, H, R, D, L, U. And the most common consonants are T, N, S, H, R. But what about finding all the correct spots for each distinct letter?
It’s quite hard to find the exact number because many five letter words are homophones (words with different meanings but same pronunciation).
The American Heritage Dictionary defines homophones as words with different meanings but identical pronunciations.
It is important to know how many different meanings a word can have when searching for it. As previously mentioned, there are 8996 five-letter words, but only 1204 of them contain every single vowel and consonant in order.
If you were looking for these types of words specifically, you would need to consider how many times the vowels or consonants occur in those particular groups or blocks (AOI, NOI) which would make it much easier.
Isolated L words
There are 78035 7-letter words. The most common letters in the English alphabet are E, T, A, O, I, N, and S. 6-letter word APPLES has the most occurrences of the letter L. 46 5-letter words have the letter L as their second to last letter.
3996 four-letter words have the letter L as their third to last letter. 1663 5-letter words have the letter L as their fourth to last letter. 12478 five-letter words have the letter L as their fifth to last letter. 803 three-letter words have the letter L as their last letter.

24 six-letter words have the letter L as their last letter. 22 seven-letter words have the letter L as their last letter. 2 eight-letter words have the letter L as their last letter.
Grouped S + Z
Do you know how many five letter words there are in the English language? I sure didn’t, until I decided to sit down and do a little research. Turns out, there’s a lot! In fact, there are over 200,000 five letter words in the English language.
It took me less than an hour to find that many using an online dictionary. And it only took me about 5 minutes more to find the first 100 of them! The list starts with ‘aardvark’ and ends with ‘zucchini‘. (I also found ‘abacus’, which is another word for calculator).
How cool is that? My friends were surprised when I told them how many words there were in the English language! They had no idea what I was talking about at first but then they wanted to start looking up their favorite words too. So now we’re all having fun trying to find as many five letter words as we can.
Prefixes beginning with A, B, C, etc.
There are quite a few five letter words out there. In fact, there are several thousand words that are five letters long. The vast majority of these words are made up of prefixes and suffixes, which means that they aren’t really words in the traditional sense.
However, there are still plenty of actual words that are five letters long. Some examples include bandit, mitten, and pentagon. These words might not be common, but they do exist!
Of course, this list doesn’t even come close to including all of the words that have five letters. For example, you’ll notice that some very common words like love or want were left off this list entirely. That’s because those don’t have any prefixes or suffixes before or after them.
Suffixes beginning with E, F, G, etc.
One might think that there are a lot of five letter words that end with the suffix -es, but this is not the case. In fact, there are only six words that end with -es: increase, decreases, commences, congresses, impressed, and Tessie’s.
There are 12 words that end with -ed: billed, caller, ceded, classified, crafting, curtailment, dresses, dwarfing seedlings Estimated 60-80% of all English words are derived from these ancient roots final gassed hilarious measured nonsense performer residence sketched surrender tempted wriggled yielder
There are quite a few five letter words in English. In fact, there are more than 12,000 five letter words in the English language. That’s a lot of words! However, not all of those words are commonly used. In fact, most people only know a fraction of the total number of five letter words.
The Wordle dictionary contains over 150,000 five letter words. That’s a lot of words! But how many of those words are actually used in English? Well, that depends on how you define used.
If you’re a fan of word games, then you know that five letter words can be tricky to come by. In fact, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, there are only around 4,000 five letter words in the English language. That might seem like a lot, but when you compare it to the number of six letter words (around 8,500), it’s clear that five letter words are far less common.
