They can be as cool as an ICEBOX or as nefarious as INFAMY, so you might be tempted to act a little IMPISH when asked to come up with as many I words as you can. INDEED, the inherent egocentric nature of the letter adds a certain INDIVIDUAL attitude to words starting with I. Read more about words that start with I.

More About Words That Start with I
In English, children usually start by learning CVC words. That’s a consonant, then a vowel, then a consonant, like in “hat” and “bag.” When the first letter is a vowel, as in the case of words that start with I, it can feel a bit IRREGULAR at first. Over time, though, you’ll start to love positive words that start with I, happily INJECTING them into your IMPROV language routine.
Common words starting with I include everything from the INK in your pen to the IGLOO in the Arctic. How cool is that? INEXPLICABLY, not all words that start with IN are about negation or direction. Yes, you may know words like INCOMPATIBLE and INWARD, but you’ve also got INSECTS, INERTIA and INFRARED. Move along and see what else you can do with all kinds of I words.
Coming up with words that begin with I may not seem all that impossible. And you might think that words that end in I are, by comparison, a rare breed (at least in English). As it turns out, you just need to expand your thinking. Some words ending in I are plural terms like FOCI and CACTI. Others are borrowed from foreign languages, like PEPPERONI and CHAI. It pays to study word lists to learn more!
