More info

Search for words by first letters, last letters, any sequence of letters, any known letters, and excluding any letters.

If you use a hyphen in a word, such as a-e, it will only find words with the letters in that order (ace, age, etc). It won't find jumbled words, such as pea, ear, etc. This may be improved in the future.

You can enter any set of letters (without hyphens or asterisks). If they make a word, the word will be shown. Even if they are not a word, any anagrams will be shown, plus any words that can be made by adding one letter. For seven letters or less, any shorter words that can be made from those letters will also be listed.

If you prefer, you can use ? or _ (underscore) to indicate one missing letter, or % or ~ (tilde) to indicate one or more missing letters. They work exactly the same as - (hyphen) and * (asterisk) above, just use whichever is easiest for you to remember and type.

Exclude letters

You can exclude letters from your search: all words containing any letters following a ^ (caret, shift-6 on US keyboards) in your search will be excluded from the results.


m--e matches 32 words, including make and mute. But m--e ^kt finds only 27 words, as it omits all words containing a k or t.

If an excluded letter is elsewhere in the word, the word will not be in the results. For example "*kin ^eiou" will not find "akin", because it contains an "i" and you've excluded words containing a "i".

This is useful for games like Hangman, where you want to exclude letters you've already guessed.
