Statistically, my estimate is that I need about 76419 words in my 9-letter word list to find a single 9-square. I have 223602, so the expected number is (223602/76419)^9 = 15270 total 9-letter word squares that can be found using this word list. We'll see how close my estimate comes.

The Mathematics of Square Construction
It's mostly finished and is projected to find a total of about 16000-17000 9-squares, so the estimate was close.

ReplyDeleteFinal total - 16338 9-squares. Not a bad estimate given the necessary crudeness of the calculation.
