How could I get alphabetical word list to display instead of search for particular word

Hello Team, I am trying to build an android app using Oxford API. I am quite happy to see all the endpoints that are given and that could help in my app. I want to ask what endpoint could I use to get a list of words as it appears in a dictionary instead of putting a search for a particular word.
Many Thanks

    Hi @hsingh762. It may be worth looking at our Wordlist endpoint, where you can generate lists of up to 5000 words at a time. If this doesn't quite suit your needs, we also licence content in another format in a single data delivery, too, so do feel free to email us if you think this might be a good option for you and we can put you in touch with our licensing team.

    Thanks @joughtred for your reply. If you referring to list where filtering with either category, domain or region can be done, that is needed but I am also looking for an alphabetical order of words as you get when you open a dictionary. I indeed have emailed my concerns to the team but am still awaiting a reply.
