Words that can be typed using only one hand.

Left handed words i've discovered:

  • warez
  • start
  • bastard
  • beat
  • babe
  • fart
  • tagged

    Right handed words I've discovered:

  • plum
  • hi (hrm)
  • milk
  • junk

    I dunno I'm really bored...what can you come up with?

  • The longest word typable with your left hand is: "stewardesses." At least, I think it is. Thank you, Pop-Up Video.

    Leftie words: feet, beer, bear, breast, beet, war, raw, read, vase, save, tease, freeze, grease, create, tear, crease, swear, extra, axe, ear, dew, ...
    Rightie words pool, phony, ploy, joy, hoop, pun, moon, (hrm, these are harder... and I think I've got something wrong, because I never learned to type the "right" way, but I'm going from one of those microsoft natural keyboards, which someone tells me are off somehow)
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w 
    
    $left = "qwertasdfgzxcvb"; 
    $right = "yuiophjklnm"; 
    
    open(F, "/usr/dict/words") or die "can't open dictionary!"; 
    
    while( <F> ) { 
    	chop; 
    	push(@left, $_)  unless( /[$right]/io); 
    	push(@right, $_) unless( /[$left]/io); 
    } 
    
    sub longest { length($b) <=> length($a); } 
    
    @left = sort longest @left; 
    @right = sort longest @right; 
    
    print "left words:\n"; 
    foreach (@left[0..9]){ print " $_\n"; } 
    print "right words:\n"; 
    foreach (@right[0..9]){ print " $_\n"; }
