Word Resemblance

This algorithm attempts to find words with the same letters and similar letter patterns as a given word. It is not a spell checker, but possibly a test for dyslexia. The given word does not have to exist in the current Puzzlefoundry dictionaries.

The algorithm uses two measurements:

  • how similar are the letters?
  • How similar are patterns between the words?

There is a trade-off calculation between similar letters and similar word patterns. Words with similar letters and word patterns in the word should score high. Alliterative words give interesting results (not sure if this istrue?)

Samples:

  • todo

Standard word and pattern searches are also available here
