What a lot of good tips....wish I had thought to start this conversation when I first started!
Another tip: longer words ending in a letter followed by 2 letters that are the same (IE ....
ogg, eff, ncc, wpp,etc) are frequently words ending with "ESS" or "ALL"
If the ending is ESS, it is almost always preceded by an "N", but sometimes by an "L".......as in worthless
Hope this helps a bit
