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.
FOUR RESOURCE TOOLS IN ONE
•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

What's New in Version 2.3
Amazing dictionary love it!!
One of the best dictionaries I have ever downloaded, the app brings a lot of words, and if you write the words wrong the app will try to help you, just spell like it sound and the app will search the word, the interface is amazing and all the features it brings make it perfect
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!
The app is great. My nephew uses it to try and learn to spell. It's great because you can type in words based on how you think they're spelled and this dictionary gives you options to go by. It's great to learn to spell or even as a full fledged dictionary. Well worth the price!
