You can find it at or, but keep in mind that this list is at least in part generated by taking a concept and modifying it with affixes for things like "by birth/by heart", "well/badly/uneventfully", "with evil intent/with good intent", "for good reasons/for bad reasons/for foolish reasons/despite negative circumstances", "finally, coming as a relief" etc (those may not be entirely accurate; that's just my inference on looking at the list). Basically, it's a system of productive derivation of words, which in the end may be more helpful than any bare list of words could be. Amanda
