A dictionary that searches for the last few letters of words

Let’s say you wanted to find all the words that end in “able.” The dictionary at onelook.com enables you to do that. Just type in an asterick before your search query. (Note, this will not work on dictionary.com or Cambridge Dictionary. And Merriam-Webster will only give you 10 results).

To find all the words that end in “able”, we go to onelook.com com and search for: *able. It will give you 100 results per page. Ok, so that was a lot of results. How about: *ldre? (the last four letters in my last name).

I got more common words by using the last three letters of my name versus using the last four letters of my name.
