What is More Words?
MoreWords is a way to search word lists. It's a crossword puzzle solver, anagram finder, codeword decoder, and a helper for other word games.
You can use it to find words (optionally of a specific length) that start with, end with, or contain certain letters.
See all examples and more details are on the examples page.
Which words are listed?
The words are from the Enable2k North American, SOWPODS (Europe Scrabble Word List) and TWL06 Scrabble Word List words list used in well-known word games. The complete list is public domain and is available to download (one word per line, no definitions).
Because this is a wordlist created especially for word games, it does not contain any hyphenated words, abbreviations, acronyms, or proper nouns (capitalised words).
It also does not contain single-letter words such as "I". Words that have accents are listed without the accents (for example soupçon is shown as soupcon).
In common with most dictionaries (other than school dictionaries) the words in the list are uncensored. So, just like in real life, a few words or their definitions may offend some people.

Tips and Tricks
More Words is designed to be fast and easy to use, and there are a few shortcuts that can make it even faster.
If you want to quickly check a word or string of letters, just enter www.morewords.com?abcdef in your browser's address bar (where abcdef is what you are looking for). No need to navigate to the page and enter the letters in the box.
For speed, try using the keyboard to navigate, rather than the mouse. On the first (search) page, pressing tab twice will get you to the input box to start typing. On the results pages, pressing tab once will get you to the "more words" headline, pressing enter there will take you to a new search page (easier than mousing down to the "new search" line at the bottom of the page).
