The Digital Sorceress
WORDFINDER

This is the DigitalSorceress.com Wordfinder. It allows you to search a rather over-complete dictionary (600,000 words) for patterns. For instance, if you want all the 8-letter words that end in "ing" you would enter "?????ing" with an "is exactly" search qualifier, while entering "p????ing" would get you all 8 letter words beginning with the letter P and ending with "ing". Use your immagination - It would be very helpful to folks trying to do anacrostics or crossword puzzles. Eventually, I might even add a "Scrabble™ Rack" or Anagram solver.

Keep in mind that this is still VERY beta and the dictionary contans many errors that will be corrected in the future

Enter your pattern with a Question Mark "?" or space as placeholders for specific unknown characters and use an Asterisk "*" in place of an unknown number of characters:

is exactly...
(Used for when you know that you have an N letter word with some known characters in arbitrary positions: "???s???nt" or "amer??a" )
containg...
(Used for when you know that the word contains some pattern but may be bigger - you only need placeholders for unknown chars you KNOW are there
beginning with...
(just like ends with, but backwards)
ending with...
(There could be no letters before your string or a dozen, though the "." will hold a place: "gry" would get you "gry, angry, hungry, etc, but "?gry" would NOT return "gry")
