    How To Use

    How's it work?

    This tool is one of our less complex tools, we simply match your start letters to our database of words and return the results, but we wouldn't be a super-duper word site without some additional functionality! You can also use multiple letters and wildcards to match any character! Read on for an explanation...

    Step-by-step Guide:

    1. Enter start letters: Enter the letter(s) you would like words to begin with, for example "A", or "AP", or even "_P". Underscores(_), will match any character, so entering "_P" will match "APPLE" aswell as "SPLASH".
    2. Browse the results: After clicking search, you will see all the words that start with your letter(s). These are broken down into word length as there can be thousands of results! We also include a "Top 20" based on points that can be scored from various word games. 
    3. Filter your results: You can filter the "Top 20" results table by number of top results, word game, maximum letters and more. If you'd like to browse all results, just scroll down to find all the words separated by length, theser can also be ordered alphabetically or by various other metrics.
    4. Get more info: Not sure about a word? Click on the word to reveal more information, we think we've got every possible detail there is about particular words, but if you think we can add more... let us know!

    Why Use Our "Starting With" Tool?

    Aside from being the best tool out there (in our opinion! dont sue us!)...

    1. Large complete database: Our database is huge, it's kind of what we do! We've got over 350k words and phrases for the English language. think we're missing something? Tell us here!
    2. Save time: You could use other tools, there's a few out there, but we've worked extremely hard to make the site as easy to use as possible with super fast response times, super easy filtering and super quick navigation.
    3. Knowledge: You're here because you can't think of words that begin with a certain letter! It's fine, we've all been there, but after using our tool for a while you'll have hundreds of words stored up above for future reference!
    4. Free to Use: Oh yeah! We're free to use! No paywalls, no apps to pay for, nothing! We do display some ads to help cover the cost of the servers, but feel free to use ad blockers! We love words, not money!
