#WordCeption: Finding Words Inside Other Words

#WordSword: Words Within Words, or, “Who put the rabble in Scrabble?”

An Amusing Exploration of Language, Discovery and Irony

Funny things happen when you look inside of words. Discoveries are made if you just open your mind. Remove a letter or two and insights appear unexpectedly. I’m not talking about adding plurals to words, nor am I talking about adding prefixes or suffixes, for example: able and unable. The best examples are those that provide new insights, irony and mental discovery. The following is a list that I have put together. I welcome new additions at this link. Thank you for finding this page.
