OneLook: A search engine for words and phrases

Published by at 6:10 am under general

How often you wondered that a definition for a word from different dictionaries would have been better. Stop wondering. OneLook is for you. It is more than  “words” search engine. It indexes words from various dictionaries and provides a comprehensive information about the word. For instance, it gives a quick definition, pronunciation audio clip and usage of the word in phrases. Please see the screenshot for the word “pleasant”

 

You can also use this tool to find a pattern consisting of letters and wild-cards * and ?, to find the words matching that pattern. This is really cool. For example, say, you want to find all the 4 letter words that start with ‘sh’ and ends with ‘t’  , then you would enter “sh?t”. This would produce the following result

1. sh!t
2. shat
3. shbt
4. shdt
5. shet
6. shft
7. shht
8. shit
9. shlt
10. shmt
11. shnt
12. shot
13. shut
14. shwt
15. shyt

Also there is sister site of this called RhymeZone. Check this out as well.
