2 (Optional)  An existing word to attach to
You can enter a word that's already on the board. We'll try to find words that can be played alongside the word, or crossing the word, or a longer word made by extending the existing word.

Or if there is a gap between words on the board that you want to fill you can enter the letters already on the board, with ? for any spaces you want to fill. For example G??T might find GIFT, or YOGURT, or GRATIFY.

You can leave this box empty if you don't need it.

3 Choose your dictionary
It's important to select the correct dictionary or we might suggest words that aren't valid in your game.

Also we show you what each word would score but we need to know which game you are playing as each game has a different scoring system.

For "Words With Friends", the game now uses a single English dictionary (a combination of the older US and UK English dictionaries).

For Lexulous, the game defaults to the "US English" dictionary, unless you select the "UK English" option before you start your game.

For Scrabble games:

USA "2018 Tournament" is the official dictionary used in tournaments in the USA (NWL2018/OWL4).

USA "2018 Merriam-Webster" is designed for home use and is censored to remove offensive words. It is sometimes called the Official Scrabble Players Dictionary (OSPD6).

USA "2018 Schools" is designed for school use and is censored to remove offensive words (SSWL2018).

USA "2016 Tournament" is an official dictionary that used to be used in tournaments in the USA (OTCWL2016/TWL2016/OWL3.1).

USA "2016 Schools" is designed for school use and is censored to remove offensive words (SSWL2016).

USA "2014 Tournament" is an official dictionary that used to be used in tournaments in the USA (OTCWL2014/TWL2014/OWL3).

USA "2014 Merriam-Webster" is designed for home use and is censored to remove offensive words. It is sometimes called the Official Scrabble Players Dictionary (OSPD5).

USA "2006 Tournament" is an official dictionary that used to be used in tournaments in the USA (OTCWL2006/TWL2006/OWL2).

USA "2006 Merriam-Webster" is designed for home use and is censored to remove offensive words. It is sometimes called the Official Scrabble Players Dictionary (OSPD4).

International "2019 Tournament" is the official dictionary used outside the USA, as of July 2019 (CSTCWL/CSW/SOWPODS 2019).

International "2015 Tournament" is now obsolete, but may still be used by some games (CSTCWL/CSW/SOWPODS 2015).

International "2012 Tournament" is now obsolete, but may still be used by some games (CSTCWL/CSW/SOWPODS 2012).

International "2007 Tournament" is now obsolete, but may still be used by some games (CSTCWL/CSW/SOWPODS 2007).

"Generic" is our own minimal dictionary which contains only words that are present across all word game dictionaries. This means any words we suggest are likely to be accepted by most games, but we might not always suggest the best words.

If the game you are playing doesn't tell you which dictionary it uses, then it might well be the USA 2018 Merriam-Webster dictionary. If you find we're suggesting words which the game doesn't accept, try using the Generic dictionary instead.
