  • I love the MST3K jokes about interociters in their treatment of "This Island Earth."

  • Hi jonas, you can't edit head words on Wordie. So your best option is probably to add Interocitor to your list and then delete Interociter.

    Note also that every word page automatically has a link to Wikipedia, i.e. the W icon.

  • So why didn't you list Interocitor?

  • "The Interocitor is an alien communications device with unusual and strange properties. The concept was invented by science fiction writer Raymond F. Jones, who wrote the original novel This Island Earth beginning as a series of three sci-fi short stories now known as “The Peace Engineers Trilogy�? appearing in the sci-fi pulp magazine Thrilling Wonder Stories from 1949 to 1951." -Wikipedia. Made into a movie, This Island Earth" was popular in the fifties and has become cult classic.
