## Answers to Questions (FAQ)

### What is a word search? (Definition)

The search for words means an exhaustive search in the dictionary according to given criteria such as the number of letters, the frequency of the word in the language or the presence of certain letters at certain positions in the word.

Reminder: This page is not always the most suitable for a word search following the rules of a specific word game. Use the search bar to find the appropriate solver.

### How to search for words according to multiple criteria?

dCode allows to combine search of words starting with, words containing with, words ending with some letters (dedicated tools pages are available on dCode).

Example: Find a word that starts with A, contains B, and finish by C : ARABIC, etc.

It is also possible to search for words that contain specific letters patterns, including the integration of joker letters (any letter)

Example: Search a word that contains the following letters DEF (in this order) in the middle of the word: UNDEFINED

Is is possible to force letters to be present, regardless of their order of appearance in the words (word search from scrambled letters in disorder).

Finally, it is possible to exclude some letters at the beginning, middle or end of a word or to sort results by length/size (selection of the number of letters).

The 3 criteria (start, middle, end) are exclusive, the containing part criterion only concerns the central letters of the word and does not apply to the first or the last letter.

### How to search for words using regular expression?

For an even more precise search (but also more complex), dCode has a tool for searching words by regular expressions.
