The Word Files series comprises over 800 boxes of examples of word and phrase usages, which are arranged in alphabetical order. Tamony stored these clippings from newspapers, books, and magazines by cutting the ends off used envelopes and writing the word or phrase at the top. He then folded the item containing the word and inserted it into the envelope.
