Reference: dictionaryMatchWord

dictionaryMatchWord(s) searches the currently loaded dictionary (see loadDictionary) for entries matching the filter s, a string containing characters and the "_" placeholder. All entries matching this filter are returned, in a list (i.e., one-dimensional (vertical) string table). A word matches s iff it has the same number of characters as s, and the ith character in s is equal to the "_" placeholder or to the ith character in the word, for all i.

Examples: dictionaryMatchWord("g__ta_")
