You know a word, but can’t remember it?

I’m pretty sure you have encountered a situation whereby, you know a word, but just couldn’t remember it at that very time. You briefly know how it sounds, little idea on how to spell it out and the meaning of the word. How annoying is that?

With Tip of My Tongue, it will be a lot easier to get the word into your head again. Just simply enter all you know about the word into the filters on the left, and it will start searching and display the results on the right in real time.

The four available filters are Partial Word (starts with, contains, ends with), Letters (unscramble, must have, can’t have), Word Meaning (1, 2, 3) and Refine search (min. length, max. length, sounds like).

Say I have forgotten the word for portable computers, I can enter the word “portable” and “computer” in the third filter and voila, results will be displayed almost instantly, with “laptop” being the first result.

The tool isn’t perfect, and sometimes might fail you if nothing matches the information that you enter in the filters. But it’s worth trying it out the next time “what was that word again?” situation strikes, rather than banging your head to the wall.
