Crossword Solver

Find a Word with a pattern


 

Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is a crossword solver? (Definition)

A crossword solver helps to solve a grid by listing the possible words according to the number of letters and the boxes already filled in, independently of the crossword puzzle definition.

How to solve a crossword puzzle?

With dCode crosswords solver, input known and unknown letters (replaced by ? , - , . , _ , * , or space) then the solver will look for all possible words in the dictionary for a given pattern.

Example: With 9 letters, D?F??I??O? gives DEFINITION or DEFOLIATOR

Most probable letters are displayed in percentages. Without finding the right word it is possible to fill some boxes.

Do not type the definition, but keep it in mind to compare it with the proposed words.

How to know the definitions of the words?

Definitions are available by clicking on the word. An infobox with the definition(s) will appear.

Where to find a crossword dictionary?

dCode dictionary is the biggest available online. For offline use check for electronic devices here (link) or books like here (link)

How to indicate a hyphenated word?

dCode handles compound words as if it were not composed.

Example: TWENTY-ONE is interpreted as a 9-letter word: TWENTYONE

How to start crosswords/arrowords?

Usually, the longest, most difficult and therefore less common words are at the top left of the grid. So prefer to start at the bottom right. This is where the majority of words end, so there are many letters E, S, R or T.

In general, many word endings can be deduced from definitions, plural definitions induce a word ending with an S (or an X). A conjugated verb leads to imagine as an answer, another conjugated verb, at the same time, and therefore with the same ending.

Then the little words in 2 letters, 3 letters or even 4 letters are often common words, whose definitions are always the same, and for a regular (even more if it's the same magazine / author), it is quick to locate them and fill in the corresponding boxes.

Finally, as soon as enough letters are positioned, dCode allows in a few clicks to fill the rest of the grid with the solver.
