Interesting about words starting with X...
Try naming five words that start with the letter X. Xylophone, X-ray…not so easy, right? You might want to stop because the Oxford English Dictionary only lists a mere 400 words that begin with the letter X. In fact, in Noah Webster’s Compendious Dictionary, which was published in 1806, there was only one word listed under the letter X: xebec, defined as “a small, three-masted vessel of the Mediterranean”. In 1828, when he put together his American Dictionary, that number had only risen to 13. The number of words starting with the letter X continued to rise until it reached the 400 that we have today.
