clue, n.

Brit. klu:

Clue is a tool to help you when you're stuck on a crossword (or similar word puzzle).

How does it work?

Enter the letters you have, using blanks for the letters you don't know.

e.g. c_t would find cat, cot, cut etc.

Tip: we will convert anything that isn't a letter into a blank for you. Spaces work well (and are easy on phone keyboards).


Find dictionary definitions, synonyms, etymologies, examples of usage etc. We are not affiliated with Wordnik; they are simply our preferred online dictionary tool and provided here for convenience.

Code is available on Github. Clue requires a modern web browser (in effect, Internet Explorer 9+). Please direct questions or feedback to Henry.
