I was wondering whether you knew of an online dictionary where you could find a word and other words derived from it. Like, for instance, "passion", "passionate" "passionately" etc.

This question came from our site for speakers of other languages learning English.

OneLook is pretty good for that.

For instance, after querying passion* and then clicking the Common words link in the result, it returns this:

1. passion
2. passional
3. passionary
4. passionate
5. passionately
6. passionateness
7. passionflower
8. passionist
9. passionless
10. passions
11. passiontide

  • I have only one "complain": it's great for showing suffixes but useless when it comes to prefixes. If I look for engage* I won't find disengage. And if I look for list* I get "listen" in the results. – user86782 Dec 18 '18 at 11:13
  • Other than that it's a cool tool! Thank you. – user86782 Dec 18 '18 at 11:14

    @user86782 You just need to put the asterisk at the front if you want prefixes: *engage. (And *engage* will give you both disengage and engagedly.) I'm also not sure why you think that list* should not give you listen. – Jason Bassford Dec 18 '18 at 11:21
