Tips to Unscramble Words

You’ve got some jumbled letters and now you’ve got to unscramble words out of them. What’s the best approach? Here are some top tips for finding what words you can make with those scrambled letters.

Look for Common Patterns

The English language uses many of the same patterns and combinations in its words. Some letters often appear next to one another, so take advantage of this fact when you’re trying to unjumble those scrambled letters. Some common examples include CH (as in “cheese”), TH (as in “there”) and PH (as in “phone”). You’ll become a better word unscrambler when you see letter combinations and not just single scrambled letters.

Start Short, Play Long

If you start by looking for the longest words possible, you’ll probably end up wasting your time. Instead, build on the idea from the previous tip. Look for common groupings of letters and look at how you might be able to string them together to unscramble words that are longer and longer.

Let’s say that you have the letters CH, and you’ve also got AEEER. Building on that CH, you might connect EA somehow. CHEA isn’t a word, but EACH is. And then, you might add the R to the beginning to get REACH. Similarly, EE is a common combo. Combining CH and EE gives you CHEE, which isn’t a word, but adding that R to the end gives you CHEER. Add the common suffix of -ED and you’ve got the 7 letter word CHEERED.

Boost your score even more by unscrambling short words. All those little points add up quickly too!

Shuffle Those Tiles

Just about every game that involves unscrambling letters to form words offers some sort of “shuffle” option. It’s not a “hint” in the traditional sense, yet the simple act of moving those letters around in a different order can help you see them in a whole new way. When you’re feeling stuck, keep tapping that shuffle button and see if a new word or letter combination pops out at you.

Unscramble Systematically

This isn’t going to be the most interesting tip, but it could be the most useful. You could say it’s the equivalent of a brute force strategy. Simply go through the possible unscrambled letters in a systematic way to unscramble words. This is especially useful in games like Word Cookies® and Wordscapes®.

For example, let’s say you have ADLMWY as your letters. AY is a common ending. If you go through the other letters systematically, you get DAY, LAY, MAY and WAY. Similarly, AD is a common ending. That creates words like MAD and LAD. Though this be madness, yet there is method in it!

Add Prefixes and Suffixes

Remember that earlier tip about starting short and playing long? Suffixes and prefixes can really help when unscrambling letters into words. If you see letter combinations like ED and ING, see if you can add them to the end of the word you’ve already found. Similarly, you might be able to add IN- or RE- to the beginning of the word.

Remember to Use Plurals

This builds on the previous tip. Count yourself lucky if you have the letter S available. Simply tack it onto the end of nearly any word you find. This includes both nouns and verbs. It can sometimes work with adverbs and adjectives too! Always play both the singular and plural versions of words if you have an S handy.
