In his article "Lightweights and Heavyweights" in the November 1972 issue of Word Ways, Darryl Francis introduced the concept of weight for words. He then went on to form two lists, one of words that were heavy for their size and another of words that were light for their size. I'd like to play around with that concept a bit more in this article.
