Some words for example I don't know what the adjective form of it is

But looking for it in google sometimes take time

So, I will be glad if you know a website which provides all the different forms of any word easily and quickly.

    I use wordhippo.com, but sometimes it doesn't find the word :( – Daimom Jun 3 '17 at 12:51

Wordreference is a very useful dictionary that allows you to see different usages of a single word depending on the context. Though it won't show you the alternative form of the word when it's an adjective, adverb, verb by adding a prefix (or removing one), it does show when a word is x part of the speech in a sentence. Take a look at short:

adj. having little length or height: the shortest boy in class.

adv. abruptly or suddenly: to stop short.

n. [countable] something short.

v. to form a short circuit (in): [ ~ + obj]:

It shows different meanings of the word depending on the context, however, it won't show that shortly is simply the adjective short + -ly. Then again short (adv.) =/= shortly (adv.)

  • Well, there's also the fact that if you take a look at one of the traditional dictionaries you'll get what you want in some words. books.google.com.co/… – Nicholas J. Nov 5 '14 at 21:18

    @Maher Those are separate words, not forms of rely. They contain derivational affixes, not inflectional affixes. – snailplane Dec 5 '14 at 3:47
