Every school child knows the joy of making words (and it has to be said, especially rude words!) on a calculator. The link below left opens a text file of 824 possible words, most discovered by me, including proper nouns and words which may only be familiar to Scrabble players.

Here is how the number/letter relate to each other:
0=O/D 1=I 2=Z 3=E 4=h 5=S 6=g 7=L 8=B

On the right is an HTML file which allows you to explore these words for yourself. The first part reverses a block of text and the second substitutes those letters for numerals which you can then enter into a calculator. The generator itself is an HTML file which will open in your browser. Open the text file then rename and save it as calc.html. The 'HTML' extension is important, because you can then click on the icon and it will open as the HTML page in your browser. Have fun and do send me some of your creations!

Major Update

At the bottom left of this page, you can open a text file which contains the massive, definitive 1455 word lexicon of possible Calculator Words. This includes slang, such as shizzle, some quite exotic words from the many dialects around the world, proper nouns and yet more words you'll only find on a Scrabble board and in cryptic crosswords. It includes the 11 letter words shigellosis and shigelloses and the longest word possible, which weighs in with 12 letters - bibliologies

Now for some fun. Here are three 'micro stories' composed with only those numbers/letters permissable on a calculator. Number 1 'Hedgehog' 

Leslie Bligh ogled, he beheld Zoe Leigh's bobsleigh. So she sold Leslie sled.

He idolised bob! So he seized sled, glided solo high hillside.

He sees Eloise. She booed his sled. 'Do oblige, see hedgehog!

He lied, 'I see'  She begged, 'Oh, be good!'

Leslie loses sled, Eloise sighed, he dislodged hedgehog.

Bloodshed. Hedgehog died.

Eloise sobbed, elegized hedgehog. Leslie's ego beseiged.

Finally, this one's a bit rude, so cover your eyes if you're a bit squeamish! It employs the 11 letter word - Hillbillies - and they are a pretty racy pair!

Obese Hillbillies Bessie, Lizzie  googled dildos. Lizzie giggled, Bessie sighed.

Hissed Bessie, 'O gosh, Heigh ho.'

Lizzie goes, He is gigolo! size is big!

Bessie gibes 'Big libido!'

Here's another. Shiloh is an Old Testament Messianic title, said to mean He Whose It Is (Genesis 49:10) and a frequently quoted town in Ephriam (Joshua 18:1) 

Ollie's ideologies obliges his hellish idols.

His ideologies dislodge Shiloh's logos.

He begs his illegible Gods go shieldless, Hoodoo he obsesses.

Behold, Leo sees God, He is blessed!

He begs Ollie seize his hell, dislodge his Godless hell. 'Go, be loosed!' he begged

Logos is good, seeds idle soil.

So Ollie lies, Leo's bold bids bedded. He sees his hellish idol is gobbled. Leo's God beseiges, begs Ollie heed.

Ollie sobs. He sees his ego hobble. He is beside Leo, he blesses Leo's bible
