My ESL students will love this list for hangman.
Please add these to the list:

sleep, slug, sluggish, slight, sleight, sleigh, slay, slain, slim, slit, slate, slat, slurp, slender.

PS A better name or punishment for hangman?
Thanks.

Those were a few that may have been useful. But overall, the whole list is rather interesting.
