The entire list of words that DS game Scribblenauts recognises has been published on the internet, comprised of a whopping 22,802 entries.

You can read all of those on Crunchgear, although doing so will ruin the surprise.

Scribblenauts is based around solving puzzles by summoning - writing - things or people to help. Jesus might know how to defeat a monster, for example, or you could use Alpha-Chloroacetophenone.

As such, Scribblenauts is one of the most anticipated games of the year.

And while 22,802 may sound feeble and finite next to the near one-million words of the English language, in list form it is bewildering.
