DictionaryLookup

DictionaryLookup[patt]
finds all words in an English dictionary that match the string pattern patt.
DictionaryLookup[patt, n]
gives only the first n words found.
  • No word stemming is done by default, so words like "jump", "jumps" and "jumping" appear separately.
  • By default, words appear as they would within a sentence. Setting the option IgnoreCase->True retrieves words whose letters appear in different cases.
