article description
Word Ways has recently published articles based on my computer analysis of Carrollian word ladders and networks. The editor subsequently suggested that I might use the computer to extend his study of insertion-deletion (ID) networks in the August 1987 Word Ways, to dictionaries larger than the Merriam-Webster Pocket Dictionary. In this pair of articles, I present the results of a few explorations. The ID network is very complicated. Although its analysis based on a larger dictionary is beyond my capability, many interesting things can be found.
