Advanced dictionary search : I'm trying to find a list of 4-letter adjectives in English. What online tools are available?

Really, I need a more general-purpose tool : a dictionary where I can use regular expressions or wildcard characters in combination with filtering on types of words (nouns, verbs, etc) and word length. Would also be nice to be able to search for a root word (something in Latin, say) and see words that partially derive from it. I'm actually surprised that I'm having trouble finding this, but now I'm starting to think it just might not exist?
