Missing Links

Are you looking for missing links that connect two other words and create a context? Then you've come to the right place with our tool. Some of them search for connecting words. The answer is a word that connects the two given words.

Find the missing link

Missing links attempt to establish a connection between seemingly unrelated terms, people or events. The challenge is to identify the missing link. Such quizzes come in different formats and levels of difficulty and often require creative thinking and a broad general knowledge.

With Missing Links, it does not matter where the connecting word appears in the respective words. It can either come before or after the given words and thus form new words. The linked, newly created words can either form a compound word or a two-word phrase.

How to use Missing Links

To search for missing links, enter your two link words into the boxes and hit search. We'll then look for any words we know that link the two together. To better illustrate this, here is an example:

In this example, we were looking for a connecting word between APPLE and TREE. Our missing links generator shows you possible solutions directly. All link words given connect both words and form new words from them.

Examples of missing links

To illustrate what form the new words can take, we have put together some examples. The following combinations result for BREAD and FIRE, among others:

First Word Link Word Second Word
Breadbox Box Firebox
Bread Pan Pan Firepan
Breaks Bread Breaks Firebreaks

This example shows that the newly created words can be used individually or as a two-word phrase.

Expand your vocabulary with the missing links

With the missing links, you can practise your vocabulary and stay fit. Not only do you need to have a broad general knowledge, you also need to use your creative thinking skills to recognise the hidden connections. The topics range from history and pop culture to science and current events. The missing links are also useful for other word puzzles such as Scrabble, Words With Friend or crossword puzzles, as you automatically expand your knowledge and vocabulary.
