  • AWAD is created by Anu Garg.

  • Tip o' the hat to Todd J. Derr for care and feeding the server and keeping it running smoothly (thus providing an exception to Murphy's Law).

  • Thanks to Stuti Garg of Namix for recording word pronunciations in her canorous voice.

  • Thanks to Eric Shackle, copy editor par excellence, for making sure all i's are dotted and t's crossed. The February edition of his free e-book has stories about the world's first crossword puzzle, and the President's Pretzel Problem.

  • Special thanks to all the linguaphiles who have joined and made AWAD what it is.
