American Wordspeller™ & Phonetic Dictionary
"Find Word by the Way it Sounds"

Type in 2-4 letters of your word by "how it sounds to you". Spell it just how it SOUNDS to you. NO spelling RULES required. If you spell the first 2-3 letters wrong, good, this dictionary will find your word no matter how you spell it as long as the letters SOUND right to you. Over 68,000 common, everyday words. This dictionary excludes most words if they start with a capitalized letter at the beginning unless the word is common to everyone (such as the word "Saturday"or "March").

Remember, just type the first 2-4 letters that you think your word starts with into the Search bar. If there are too many word choices...add more letters to narrow your search.


•Very brief definitions to help you quickly understand the meaning of a word.

•Your word will have Cross-References if is sounds or is spelled similar to other words. Examples:

petal/ pedal/ peddle
carrot/ caret/ karat/ carat
immigrant/ emigrant

•Suffix Speller - root word spelled out with all suffix endings attached.
Example: 'mad':
mad = madder, maddest, madden, maddening, maddeningly, madly, madness

•Prefixes listed along with their definition. Example:
satisfied = dis (for dissatisfied) / un (unsatisfied)

Thank you!

I am still learning English and this app helps a lot. The results show up very quickly after I search for a word. This works well because I am not a good speller but can still find words because this app looks up how it's said. Thank you!

Excellent Spellchecker!

What a terrific app this is to help me and others in so many ways! It helps ensure that I get it right AND it does not require the Internet. It is also immediate and is not littered with ads that block the screen and slow me down! Thank you!
