Search regular expressions
Search regular expressions with given number of matches. Regular expression is a sequence of symbols and characters expressing a string or pattern to be searched for within a longer piece of text. For example for regular expression we$ program finds the words which ends with we. Regular expressions are very powerful tool for searching. For more information you can make internet search with request string regular expressions of perl.
Search concatenations/substrings. Let's take two strings so and n (empty strings are allowed). The first one we attach to the begin of word, the second to the end. Word uther is valid because dictionary has word southern = so+uther+n.
There is additional option. One can set how many characters we preliminary remove from begin and end of words. For example, 3 characters from beginning and 4 characters from end. Let's take word evolutionary. At first remove first 3 letters and last 4 letters we got lutio. Add strings to the begin and end solution = so+lutio+n. This word is in dictionary. Note. Program search words with length more than sum of number of removed characters.
Search characters sequence
Search characters sequence. For sequence mata program finds next words matador, razzmatazz and so on.
Search sequence words
Sequence words are pair of words, if last several letters of the first word equal to first several letters of the second word. For example, last eight letters of word exanimated, agree with first eight letters of word animatedly.
Search double sequence words
Double sequence words. Search two sets of words such that some number of last characters for any word of first set are first characters of any word from second set and vice versa. For example last four characters of word rainforest are first four characters of word restrain and at the same time last four characters of restrain are first characters of word rainforest.

Frequency of word length (descend)
Program shows frequency of words with given length
It seems that word length is normal distribution random variable. On the pictures below one can see word length frequency data and normal distribution approximation.
|English dictionary. Expected value - 8.9546. Dispersion - 8.2675.|
|Russian dictionary. Expected value - 9.6727. Dispersion - 9.2424.|
Two nearby characters distribution
Program shows two nearby characters distribution in the words of dictionary, sorted in descending order.
If one sorts letter by frequency in descending order and create graph then it seems that logarithm of frequency will be a linear function.
