5 Letter Words

The Design215 Word Finder is a free utility that unscrambles words, finds anagrams, solves jumbles, finds rhyming words, and helps with Scrabble, crosswords, and other word games. For example, you can find all 6 letter words that start with “d” and end with “n”. Find words that rhyme by searching for words that end with the same letters. If you enter letters into the “Unscramble” box, the other fields will be ignored and the program will find any words that can be formed from those letters. Unscramble now finds combinations of two words by default.

DIRECTIONS AND TIPS

  • Try the Word Pattern Finder if you need wildcards, include, and exclude.

  • UNSCRAMBLE UPDATED 12.22.2012:
    By default, the “Unscramble” box now returns a list of one and two word solutions that use all letters. Remember, the “Unscramble” box ignores all other fields

    For games like SCRABBLE®, check “show all words you can make with these letters” to find all words that can be made from any number of the letters entered. 

  • Word searches return a maximum of 500 words, 1500 for unscrambles.
  • To find words that rhyme, enter the last few letters of a word in the “Ends with” box.
  • Use the “Length” menu to limit the number of letters in the words being searched. If you only want to find 4 letter words, select “4 letters”. If you want to find words of any length, up to and including 8 letters, select “8 letters” and check the “or less” box.
  • The “Contains” box works two ways. Enter “cat” with the checkbox unchecked, and you’ll find words like “catch”, “locate”, and “tomcat”. If “any order” is checked, you’ll find words containing the letters “c”, “a”, and “t”, in any order, like “cadet”, “exact”, and “teach”.

    Complex Example:
    If you wanted to find words that begin with “a”, end with “s” and contain “a” and “i” in the middle of the word, enter “a” in “Begins with”, “s” in “Ends with”, and “aai” in “Contains” with “any order” checked. The two a’s are necessary if you want words that begin with “a” AND have another “a” somewhere in the middle. You’ll find “airbags”, “animals”, and “aviators”.
  • Wildcards or Missing Letters?
    To unscramble a word when one or more letters are missing:
    1. Enter the known letters in the “Contains” box instead of “Unscramble”.
    2. Check “any order”.
    3. Select the total number of letters in the word from the “Length” menu.

    For example, if you had 4 letters and a wildcard, “e?tca”, you would enter “etca” in the “Contains” box, check “any order” and select a Length of “5 Letters”.
  • Crossword Puzzles
    Use the “Length” menu with a combination of “Begins with”, “Ends with”, or “Contains”, depending on what letters in the crossword are filled in. Uncheck “any order”.

HISTORY

The programming for this page was originally written in GFA-Basic by Robert Giordano on anAtari TT030 while he was in college. His program would spellcheck in real time as you typed, on a 32mhz computer, using a 99,000 word dictionary! People using Windows 95 were amazed… and jealous. In 2001, he converted some of the code to ASP and created a web page on gallery215.com but it was not available to the public. In 2005, the ASP version was converted to PHP for this site using the ASP Translator and a few tweaks.
