Searching by word pattern is an ambiguous notion, dCode offers 2 modes:
Example: The ABBA pattern allows you to find all the 4-letter words having the first letter identical to the last letter and a pair of 2 identical letters in the middle (but different from the first and last letter and not necessarily an A or a B'), like the word NOON.
Example: The pattern -A-A- indicates a word of 5 letters with the 2nd and the 4th identical letter (not necessarily an A) the other letters (- = joker) can be any letter. Words like COCOA or SEVEN match the pattern.
Example: The pattern -E-E-E indicates a 6 letter word with an E in 2nd, 4th and 6th position (such as DELETE, SEVERE, etc.)
From a cipher word (idiomorph), the unsubstitution consists in analyzing the distribution of the letters and especially the position of the repeated letters. Long words (from 9-10 letters) have a rather unique fingerprint.
Example: The pattern LWZLMOMWMOGF can correspond to the word SUBSTITUTION
This approach only works for monoalphabetic substitutions and for an existing word in the dictionary.
