It's a list of stop-words.  The stop-word list for any language is going 
to be at most
a few hundred words, and is likely to be changed less often than 
anything else in the
program.  On the other hand, is_stopword/1 is going to be called for 
*EVERY* (or
almost every) word in the data that's processed; this is a function you 
want to be
FAST.
