A quick dictionary script that returns the word if it exists in the included dictionary files, or returns "-1" if it doesn't.
Easy to use and simple. Code is well commented and the example is minimal so not to make it confusing.
If you would like to try some of my code check out Snowflake_Polygon_Star which is free.
They are broken down into 78 files so that the word can be obtained quickly without having to search through a large file each time.
This is perfect for word find games and works great on windows and android. It has yet to be tested on other targets. So please comment, and let me know if anything should be improved.

Just what I was looking for.
This was very simple to include in my project and with one single line of code to call the dictionary check it could not be any easier to use. Was worried the search could introduce a noticeable lag but it's nice and fast. Really nice script, very happy with it.
I haven't spent a great deal of time yet pumping in words to see which scrabble list it uses, there are differences between the UK and US lists, I've asked for clarification of that. I've noticed one or two UK scrabble words not being recognised so am assuming it's the US list.
To avoid potential copyright infringement issues with using scrabble lists I'm going to swap out the text files for the ENABLE word list which has been placed explicitly in the public domain. See the link below.
