Common anagrams that you may not know of
A lot of common words have anagrams that you might not even know about... I sure didn't. That was actually one of
the driving forces in my decision to make an anagram finder. I LOVE word games, but I hated getting stuck on a level or
in a crossword. It drove me CRAZY! Not any more... through the use of my tools and practice,
I am a word game master!
Here is a list of common words that you might not know have other common anagrams.

- Stressed = Desserts
Did you know any of these? I knew and didn't know. I heard knew of both words, but didn't think about the fact that
they were exact anagrams of each other. Knowledge is power!

Tips to Help Solve Anagrams In Word Scramble Games
You are anagramming... and you have a seven letter anagram to solve and you have 7 scrambled letters. What do you do?
- If you can, scramble the anagram letters around in a different pattern. Sometimes it will help something jumps out at you.
For example, here are seven letters: G N I S A A B
Scramble them, A B I S A N G... again... ABAISNG... got it! ABASING
Look for possible suffixes. A lot of English words are formed by the addition of suffixes. Words like walk + ed, reflect + ion or ed and so on.
Here is a list of the most common English suffixes: ing, acy, al, ance, ence, ed, er, or, ist, ity, ty, ment, ness, ship, tion, sion, ate, ly, able, ible, ful, ic, ical, ous, ive, ish, y, less
Look for prefixes. Just as with suffixes, prefixes can change a words form and create a new word (anagram).
Here is a list of common English prefixes: anti, auto, de, down, dis, extra, hyper, il, im, in, ir, inter, mega, mid, over, out, post, pre, post, pro, re, semi, sub, tele, up, under, un, ultra.
In this anagramming scenario, you will notice that the word ABASING ends in ING, so if you found that suffix first, you would only have 4 letters to work with. A A B S, from there you could deduce that it isn't likely for
it to start with a BS, so you can eliminate that combination.
Now you are left with either ABAS + ING or BASA + ING and A isn't common after ING, so elimate that and you solved your anagram!
You are playing a word scramble game like Scrabble or Words With Friends and you are dealt 7 tiles. This time its different, because not only can the word have 7 letters, but also 6 letters, 5 letters, 4 letters, 3 letters or 2 letters.
How many words can you make with these letters?
Knowing what a permutation is helps: A permutation is a different way to arrange characters or digits in a word or number. According to word descrambler, a 7 letter word has 2,520 different ways to unscramble the letters!
Lucky for us, we don't have to deal with all those combinations. There are only so many words with these letters you have, a lot less than 2520! Here is an example,
paeotun, I skipped ahead and used our anagram solver to find out how many anagrams & and possible words it has: 137. That is still a lot, but using these techniques you can narrow it down a bit.
- Just like above, look for suffixes: I instantly noticed the letters: AUTO
Look for prefixes... nope, none!
There are only 3 letters left in the 7 letter word, and they happen to be in the correct order, PEN... got it AUTOPEN
Here are words in your word
- 6 letter words - peanut, teopan
- 5 letter words - atone
- 4 letter words - auto, neat, nope, tune, tuna, punt, poet
- 3 letter words - ant, ape, apt, eat, top, tap, pot, pun, put, ton, ten, tea, nut, oat, pea, nap, pen
- 2 letter words - up, at, to, on, an
That's not all the words, but those are words that I found quickly by using the anagram solving tips above.
Palindromes are anagrams too
The definition for a palindrome is...
"A word or phrase that reads the same backwards and forward." Its a simple concept, right?
but how on earth can you find words like that? That is why we are here. Our goal is to make your life easier
(word game stuff only, sorry!).
Since palindromes are technically anagrams too, they are a perfect fit for our anagram solver!
Here is a list of 5 letter palindromes that can be used in the game of Scrabble & other word games.
