Hi Amber,

Can you give one example, or a test case? If you need every English word,
you need to read a English dictionary, which has all the words, and store
it in map, or hash-map, because list would be very slow for accessing the
words. (is it the case that you want to break a line, e.g., “brown fox
jumped over the lazy dog” into list of words, [brown, fox, jumped, over,
the, lazy, dog]?)
