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.
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.
Definitions are available by clicking on the word. An infobox with the definition(s) will appear.
dCode handles compound words as if it were not composed.
Example: TWENTY-ONE is interpreted as a 9-letter word: TWENTYONE
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.
