A flexible multi-language word finder
This isn't your typical anagram solver or Scrabble word finder. You're looking for words that you have a much looser, yet still tangible idea about.
The app was designed with type designers in mind, but I hope it can be useful to anyone.
Search one or more of 182 languages for words with specific letters, length, or matching a Regex pattern. The word lists are compiled from Wiktionary, so every word has a wiki link available.
First pick one or more languages to run your query against, or use one of the presets:
- Latin European
- African (extended Latin) – has the ‘rare accents’ filter checked to focus on the Pan-African alphabet
And... you're actually good to go, if you just want to pick some random words from A to Z! You will see an entry for every letter. You can swap each word until you find the one you like, pin words you like to shuffle the remainder, or pick your words manually from the list of all results.
If you want to narrow down your search, use the search input to get more specific results. For instance, you might want to find English words of 5 to 10 letters, including a combination of “fi” or “fl”. Expand the filters section to use the other filters such as:
- the negative search input (type anything you don't want to come up);
- positive and negative accent filters (“accent” is used here as an umbrella term for a letter that is not found in the English, Russian, and basic Greek alphabets);
- alliteration filter – for finding words that repeat their initial letter, like “Adam”, Bob”, and “Cecilia” (linguists — my apologies for abusing the term);
- punctuation, digit, multi-word filters – to filter off all the chemical compound names and other quirky entries added by the enthusiastic Wiktionarians (Kudos to them, though).
