An anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of another word or phrase. For example, "Time Heals All Wounds" can be rearranged to form "Most Will Use A Handle". The Internet Anagram Server (aka "I, Rearrangement Servant") gives results in your browser, and has an Advanced interface which allows you to include or exclude certain words, specify minimum or maximum numbers of letters per word and a few other tweaks.


Anu Garg, creator of The Internet Anagram Server, also offers Dictionary, Thesaurus, and Acronym lookups by email, as well as A.Word.A.Day, a newsletter for people who want to explore the world of words and share it with other wordlovers. For details on any of these services, send a blank email to wsmith@wordsmith.org or check them out here:


Also notable in the anagram arena is Anagram Genius, at


Anagram Genius offers results by email only, which I find a bit annoying. But it's better at processing long input strings and generating sentence-like results. For example:

It's not over until the fat lady sings = Sanity distorts fun-loving athlete. Naughtiest fan distorts violently. Stealthy virtuosos finding talent.


If you're a fan of the Scrabble board game, you'll love this one. Unscrambler will find all the words that can be formed from a given set of letters and determine their Scrabble scores. For example, the letters "ETPALRS" can be unscrambled to form PLASTER, PLATERS, PSALTER or STAPLER, all of which have a Scrabble score of 9 points. The Unscrambler is available in both English and French.

If you're having trouble getting a word in a crossword puzzle, then perhaps OneAcross can help. In addition to pattern dictionary searches, it can analyze the clue as well. OneAcross lets you enter either the length of the answer or an answer pattern, in which you use a question mark for unknown letters in the word. OneAcross also has a tool to help you solve cryptograms.



At Dictionary.com, you can look up a word in either a dictionary or Roget's Thesaurus (to find synonyms and antonyms).
