There are four sets in this package:

english_words_lower_set: A set of English words containing lower-case letters; with punctuation.
english_words_alpha_set: A set of English words containing both upper- and lower-case letters; with no punctuation.
english_words_lower_alpha_set: A set of English words containing lower-case letters; with no punctuation.
lower set is the same as the
english_words_set with all
upper-case letters converted to lower-case letters, and where the
alpha set is the same as the
english_words_set with all apostrophes
') removed. The
lower_alpha set intuitively has both of the rules
lower set and the
