Example beginning of a crossword

cordage

onassis
uighur
sc inert

s

A crossword puzzle usually consists of smaller blocks interconnected by longer words.

In the above example I could look for a word that contains the letter t at position 7 to begin a block to the right. On further looking, I see this wont work at this spot as the word Onassis would not work with any other letter on the end. So instead I could take the s on 'gas' to look for something to extend across to the right. s at position 1. I'll try sabotages and see if I can build a good block to the right

Or to begin a block below I could look for words with s at position 4. I'll try Abyssinia there.

cordage
acacia
leg sabotaged
lat
onassis
uighur
sc inert
p
abyssinia

If I can't build good blocks out of those starts I may try others as the goal is to have as many words packed into any area as possible with little gaps.

The search results may contain information on words meant to help with clue creation and not necessarily a full dictionary style definition.
