“When I entered some letters in the Solver, I got some really strange words back in the results. Why is that?”
Our Solver searches a list of nearly 300,000 qualifying words which we’ve compiled from various online sources. Not everything in our list is a valid dictionary word, so you will sometimes see very odd or obscure words in the solution set. This is so that we can provide the widest selection of possible solutions for any set of seven letters.
We do try to limit our results only to valid English words, but with such a massive list to work through there’s no way we can check everything. Life is too short!
