This section of our website allows you to play around with words. You can search for words having specific letters and sounds, see which words we find interesting, and view lists or words with special characteristics—like anagrams, and difficulty level. You can also use our WordList search feature to find words matching any sound or letter pattern you want.
This is the Beta version of our WordList search page. The WordList search function seems to be working fine but we are still working on cleaning up the word lists a bit. Please let us know if there is anything that doesn't work for you. You can log in as guest for now.
Some people find words fascinating. If you are one of those people, this section is for you. This section has a list of words that we've run across that are interesting enough to remember. Each word is presented with a definition and several examples of its use. Seeing how a word is used helps to fix the definition in your memory so that the next time you see the word you'll be able to understand the meaning of the sentence.
We've picked out one word from our favorites list to be featured each day.

This list is generated from our big words database. We excluded many of the words in the database that differ only in capitalization e.g. Bob and bob, but some slipped through. We also excluded words and phrases with spaces or hyphens, e.g. ninety-seven and seventy-nine. There was no human input in the selection process so you may find things that make no sense.
I've often wondered how often someone uses a particular word. Politicians seem especially prone to using certain words over and over in their speeches. I've also wondered about the the difficulty level of some of the words so we're going to add that information in the future. Paste or type text into the box and we'll count the number and frequency of the words.
Find all the words with a specific consonant in the Initital, Medial, or Final position in a word. You can also find pre-vocalic and post-vocalic consonants.
This is similar to the last section except that it lets you find all the words with a specific consonant cluster in the Initital, Medial, or Final position in a word. Note that English doesn't have some sounds in the initial position (tl, dl, vl, and zl) but we'll let you search for them anyway.
Use this section to search for vowel sounds in the Initial, Medial, or Final position.
