I need a Spanish word list, as simple as that.

The more complete it is, the better, it should contain as many words as to be a statistically relevant sample.

It can be in any format: XML, MS Excel, .txt. It doesn't need to be in any specific order.

I want to import it into a database, and make some statistical analysis about letter and syllable frequency and in what combinations do they appear, where in the word, etc.

As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion. If you feel that this question can be improved and possibly reopened, visit the help center for guidance.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

First of all, keep your tone down and be respectful. I've clearly stated that the question was closed temporarily (closing is a temporary state, well that depends on you), but if you keep using this attitude, I'm not going to help you. This is no censorship. If it was censorship your question would be deleted and you suspended but luckily, I'm impartial in my judgement. I think you could try to include in your question: (1) what you tried searching in Google before asking (concrete examples) and (2) what kind of analysis you're willing to do. – Alenanno Jun 10 '12 at 17:07
You could get this question reopened if you showed a little more interest. – Alenanno Jun 10 '12 at 17:17
This question was originally asked on spanish.SE. I'd like to cross reference the two by linking: I need a Spanish word list for statistical analysis (as complete as possible) – hippietrail Jun 12 '12 at 9:28
@Petruza: I've been battling to get this question reopened. With quite some effort I have found a list with 354,227 definitions, of which 240,475 are unique forms. It includes proper nouns, inflected forms, prefixes, suffixes, abbreviations, initializations, and symbols among other things which you may or may not want. It is not 100% clean data. These are the kinds of extra details the site moderators would like you to specify to make this a great question. Please try to address these points so the mods will reopen your question. I am not a mod and can't open it on my own... – hippietrail Jun 12 '12 at 10:39
Yes, hippietrail has showed some interest in reopen it and I have no intention of ignoring it (we had a talk in chat). So @Petruza, if you make sure you address the points hippietrail asked and the ones I asked, I think it could get reopened and you'll get your answer. – Alenanno Jun 12 '12 at 10:45
