## More About Words With X

It may surprise you to learn that words with X in them aren’t as hard to find as you might EXPECT. Sometimes, you just need to FIX your gaze on the right place and you’ll enjoy a huge INFLUX of X words. There’s even an African ground squirrel called a XERUS that looks like a prairie dog!

As you continue your EXAMINATION of words with X, you may discover the chemical element called XENON. It’s a noble gas sometimes used in electric lamps. And even though you probably know it best as a brand name, XEROX is a perfectly valid word to copy onto your list of words containing X too. If you want short words with X, you’ve got REX, OX, and XIS, for starters.

The letter X can certainly be cryptic. Keep your exploration going with a list of words that start with X. Perhaps study the list while relaxing in a XYSTUS (a covered portico or garden walk planted with trees). Or maybe you could experiment with XYLOGRAPHY, the art of making wood engravings. Then, follow up with words ending in X. Be as clever as a FOX with X words both COMPLEX and simple.
