Words ending with a given letter
Find out how all the words in the English language that end with any specific letter of the alphabet.
Taking advantage of “hooks” is one of the most common and useful strategies in games such as Scrabble or Words with Friends. In these word games, “hooks” refer to any letter or sets of letters that can be added to an already existing word to change it into a new term.
Although it is possible to have “hooks” at the beginning of words, they are much more common as endings. Thus, studying and knowing lists of words ending in a certain letter can be very advantageous in these games.
Look for common sets of endings
Remembering a word by its final letter can be a bit tricky. However, many word endings stand out not because of the last letter but because of its group of final letters.
For instance, if you check out the list of words ending in ‘G’, you will see that the great majority actually ends in “-ing”. Likewise, if you take a quick look at the list with words ending in “D”, you will see a great number of words with “-ed” at their end.
Grouping the words by their common set of ending letters makes it easier to memorize them.
Focus on uncommon ending letters
Common endings will help you group the words and memorize them, which in turn will help your game of Scrabble or Words with Friends run smoothly. Nevertheless, those with uncommon ending letters are the ones that may give you the edge to win the game.
More often than not, singular endings are attached to more obscure words. You can use them to surprise your opponents and even get them to challenge your move. Additionally, these uncommon endings come from less frequent but high-value letters in games such as Scrabble or Words with Friends. For instance, you can use these lists to learn words ending in ‘Q’ (without a following ‘U’),
Balance your points
All words in these lists are marked with their total value in a game of Scrabble. If you select one, you can also learn about their worth in Words with Friends.
When organizing your study, give priority to the ones that can get you more points during a game. However, do not focus solely on the longest and more valuable terms. Try to learn various words with different lengths and balance your points accordingly. By doing that, you will be better prepared to take any Scrabble board and to decide when and how to use longer or shorter words.
