Welcome to the Ditloid Droid

A ditloid is a type of word puzzle, in which a phrase or quote must be deduced from the
numbers and abbreviated letters in the clue. Common words such as
'the', 'in', 'a', 'an', 'of', etc. are not normally abbreviated.

For example: 9=SF in a SY could be 9 SQUARE FEET in a SQUARE YARD.

Most people will have come across them before but maybe not known what they
were called. I've seen them called letter equations, number/letter puzzles and
all sorts of other different things. After a week of trying to solve the same ones,
some of the things I've heard them called are not repeatable!

The name 'ditloid' was given by the Daily Express newspaper, originating
from one of the first of this type of puzzle:
1 = DitLoID ? 1 Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich.

The Ditloid Droid attempts to solve these puzzles by itself. Just ask it your puzzle then press Enter.
The droid will search its own database and the internet to try and find the answer.
