I came across this writing-related trivia in an old issue of Writer’s Journal and thought it was interesting.

  • The average person’s left hand does 56 percent of the typing. “Stewardess” is the longest word typed with the left hand only. “Lollipop” is the longest word typed with the right hand only.
  • “Dreamt” is the only English word that ends in the letters M-T.
  • Four words in the English language end with D-O-U-S: stupendous, tremendous, horrendous and hazardous.
  • Only two words in the English language use all five vowels in order: abstemious and facetious.
