“We wanted to give our loyal followers the chance to contribute to the puzzle because we know how much they enjoy playing it,” said Daniel Stewart, Head of Marketing for Oxford Dictionaries. “We asked them to come up with words that were interesting but not unsolvable, and they certainly rose to the challenge. Hundreds of tricky English words were submitted, and many are now part of the puzzle. Hangman has proved to be amongst the most popular free word games on our website, and it is regularly played by both native English speakers and those who want an enjoyable way to improve their English.”
“Hangman has been a popular word game since Victorian times, usually played with pen and pencil, but Oxford Dictionaries Online provides the perfect way to play Hangman online,” said Mr Stewart. “It sits perfectly alongside our other word games and online crosswords, and is both great fun and a good way to improve spelling. We are delighted that our Twitter followers were so enthusiastic about helping us come up with new words for the game, and we hope they are just as happy with the result.”
