how do i make an lcd screen (the ones that have the 8 things not the computer screen) say a word like go ou or hello?

i mean by real circuits not typing somthing like 458472 and turning it upside down.

You need to find the specs for that particular display, so you know which pins control which segments and whether they do so directly or indirectly. That will also tell you what signals, at what voltages, you need to apply in order to display those segments.

BUT: It's quite possible that the display is designed to display only 0-9, or those plus A through F for hexidecimal.

 you interface it using any number of chips, by flashing certain segments on or off, it will form letters. they are made up of leds.

not led, it's still LCD

 oh... like a calculator display.

in that case, you will need to find the datasheet, or goof around with the display... if it is truly the display that im thinking of, then a 7 segment led display would be easier to interface, and imo, look cooler
