Tips to Solve a Word Scramble
You’ve got some mixed letters and now you’ve got to unscramble words out of them. What’s the best approach? Here are some top tips for solving your next set of jumbled letters. Find the answers to the word puzzle in front of you.
Look for Common Patterns
The English language uses a lot 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 mixed up letters. Some common examples include CH (as in “cheese”), TH (as in “there”), and PH (as in “phone”).
Start Short, Play Long
If you start by looking for the longest words possible, you’ll probably just 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 form words that are 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.
And don’t forget that short Scrabble words can be super effective 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, but 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, mash on that shuffle button and see if a new word or letter combination pops out at you.
Try Systematic Combinations
This isn’t going to be the most interesting tip, but it could be the most useful, especially for circle word games like Wordscapes. You could say it’s the equivalent to the brute force strategy. Simply go through the possible unscrambled letters in a systematic way. For example, let’s say you have ADLMWY as your letters. AY is a common ending, so 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.
Add Prefixes and Suffixes
Remember that first tip about starting short and playing long? Suffixes and prefixes can really help there. 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 RE or IN to the beginning of the word.
Remember to Use Plurals
This builds on the previous tip. If you have the letter S available to you, tack it onto the end of just about any word you create. 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 around.
