welcome, ums!

you might try onelook patterns

something like ?1??? will get you everything with five letters with i as the second, but then you'll have to filter out the q's and z's.

I was curious, so I tried this search (common words only) and there are (only) 1533 five-letter words with second letter i in the OneLook index. (this is fortuitous since the upper limit for listing is 2000.)

1533! Even if 1/3 have a q or z I hope you aren't planning to make your students memorize the list. wink
