How to use Words With Letters
Getting your scrambled letters to turn into all sorts of real words is as easy as popping them into the tool’s letters field. Remember that in this main search box, up to a maximum of 15 letters may be entered, including 2 wildcards.
After you click submit, inputted letters will transform into various legal words and anagrams. Grouped together alphabetically and by length, these valid terms will each have a corresponding value, which follows the points system of a standard game of Scrabble.
To demonstrate, let’s enter “hulrsie” in the box. Doing so gives you “hurlies,” a one-to-one anagram of the given. Promising words from other categories are also at your disposal, giving you the means to strategize if you wish to play modestly.
To get a specific set exclusively, simply enter a number in the length field. For instance, typing “5” in the box results in a slew of 5-letter words, barring out everything else.
This part of the tool may only accept a number that’s no more than the given letters. So, in this case, since “hulrsie” has 7 letters, the length field will accept no more than 7 letters.
In online Scrabble and Words With Friends, you’ll eventually draw a blank tile, which assumes the letter of your choice for the entirety of the game. Words With Letters calls such a tile a wildcard, which is denoted by the question mark “?” symbol.
For example, let’s replace “h” in the given with a wildcard and enter the string “?ulsrie” in the letters field. Your results should look like this:
As you can see, besides “hurlies,” a number of other anagrams just became available. That’s because a wildcard can be any letter as long as it results in a legal word. Note: This tool can only take 2 wildcards at a time.
After the initial word has been spelled on the board, you and your opponent are required to form succeeding words by working with the letters already at play. The starts with, ends with, and contains advanced options are your choices to that end.
With the starts with field, you’ll be given words that begin with a particular letter. Let’s suppose you wish to spell from the available letter “f” on the board. Typing that letter in the starts with field gives you the following:
The ends with function will list words that end with the letter of your choosing. For example, entering “k” in the field results in “shriek,” “sheik,” and “shirk,” among others.
If you want to play a word with a letter that can be in any spot in that word, the contains field is for you. Let’s enter “m” in the box as an example.
If two or more letters are entered in this field, returned words will contain them in the order they were typed. To demonstrate, let’s type “am” in the box. After clicking submit, you’ll get words such as “amuser” and “hamuli,” which in anatomy is the plural form of hamulus—a hook-shaped projection that links a winged insect’s forewings and hindwings.
A couple of things to know about these three advanced search options: 1.) You can use them in combination to narrow your search, and 2.) You can use each independently, utilizing the tool as a standard word finder.
A WordsRated-exclusive feature is the exclude field. With it, the challenge posed by hangman-like games such as Wordle and Quordle becomes a cakewalk. Its utility in Words With Friends and online Scrabble, on the other hand, allows for letter omission while leaving the jumbled letters intact.
From a fresh search, Words With Letters groups returned words by length, which is the default option set for the group words advanced function. If it’s a single, comprehensive list you’re after, you only need to select no grouping on the dropdown.
Returned words given to you on this platform are arranged alphabetically (A – Z) by default. Selecting Z – A will reverse that order. Lastly, choosing points will arrange words by points, which is always in descending order.
