## Answers to Questions (FAQ)

### How to change a letter in a word?

The best way to replace a letter from a word to make another word is to use dCode that will try all possibilities (only one letter or more than one letter changing)

If the position of other letters is kept unchanged (search for paronym):

Example: From the word LETTER, by switching the first letter with a B, make the word BETTER.

If letters can be scrambled, then:

Example: From the word LETTER, by changing one letter without keeping the position of the letters, make the existing words TESTER (+S -L) or STREET (+S -L).

If no letter is changed, see anagrams.

The change may possibly consist of removing letters in a word (without adding any) or adding letters in a word (without deleting any)

### How not to change any letter in a word?

To keep the letters but only reorder them, use the anagram generator.

### How to search for paronym?

A paronym is a word that looks like another word, both visually and phonetically. To search for a paronym, search for a word by keeping letter order and changing a few letters (1 or 2).
