I challenge you all to violate Zipf law by writing a post that violates Zipf law, also known as the 80-20 law, or 80% of something generates 20% of something else. It does not have to make linear sense but must be legible. Don't go all "The Great Gatsby" over it and write a book without "The" word "The". (Obvious attempt at pun is obvious)

Here's a fact. "The" is the single most common word in the English language. 25,270,000,000 results on Google.

Least common words I could find-

Quizzaciously-23,800
Nudiustertian-4,680

20% of words make up 80% of the words said.

So, here is the beginning of my answer to my own challenge.

If one person were to be put in a white torture room, after an uncountable unpredictable number of days, months, weeks, years, decades, centuries, they would go insane.

If one were to contemplate this, they would be placed inside a padded cell.

Overall, would one be correct in assuming that the hyperwebster contains every possible word out there? It contains every possible combination of letters that one could create using 26 letters in the English language.

End Challenge.
And that, dear people, is how one makes a quzzaciousness of a Scientific and Linguistic Law.

Please provide link for quzzaciousness. I'm fairly certain it isn't a word. ,(said mockingly)
You might be attempting to neologize and/or use it as a hapax legomenon. But I'm pretty sure it isn't a word. Did you purposely leave out an "I"?

Umm that's not a link to quzzaciousness. And you have it misspelled. No i. And the suffix "Ness" isn't lisited.

Who cares how it's spelled? And "ness" is not listed because it's a suffix. Can be tacked on to almost everything

sounds like your trying to use zip file thinking to compress files as something else. frequency of words is irrelevant unless your working on compression of a file, or screening for a phrase, or modifying a service like Microsoft does on some of their screen keyboards. but that is still counted according to individual frequency of use.

just how is this supposed to be interesting or something?

It's supposed to be a challenge. Just to show how often we use certain words

Other suffixes are listed. Almost is the relevant word. Please provide link where using "ness" is grammatically correct. And the words root is quiz which is either a verb or a noun. Usually "Ness" is added to an adjective to make it a noun. Since the root is already a noun it would make adding "ness" redundant as you merely should use the root word quiz, already the noun needed.Let's see if it would suffice...

Did you intend to make a quiz?
