Hello,

So, I have a printed list of stop words:

http://www.ranks.nl/stopwords

I'd like to turn this list into an Erlang function that I can query---

stopwords() ->
   ["word1", "word2" ... "wordN"].

is_stopword(Word) ->
   List = stopwords(),
   lists_member(Word, List).

All my efforts so far have evolved into ugly kludges. Seems to me there must be an elegant method that I'm overlooking.

Some kind soul point the way?

Many thanks,

LRP
