10 Letters, 10 Words
Language brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.
From the following 10 letters see if you can make first a one-letter word, then a two-letter word, then a three-letter word, and on up to a 10 letter word: SSIMTEODTH
I, do, met, shot, timed, desist, methods, moistest, Methodist, Methodists.
This is just one of the many, many combonations there can be.

May 25, 2006
|following xdbtcp's rule, you could still have:|
following TehIgnored's rules: (i assume he meant you can't change the order of the letters either), you could have:
i don't think you can get further than 5 letters, but feel free to prove me wrong!
Aug 24, 2006
|I didn't get it. I thought each word had the last one in it.|
...didn't get any further.
Sep 02, 2006
|that loooong list may have come from anagram.com but judging from the words missing and the words that aren't words my guess is it came from the ntworld Scrabble Solver. I didn't use the pages address as I don't know if the site rules allow a full address. I was able to solve it, but like others my words were different using the rule described above.|

May 07, 2007
|i liked this one because it could have more than one answer, but i didn't come up with any others for the 9 and 10 letters words besides the answers.|
Mar 02, 2012
|I assumed you weren't allowed to change any letters you had previously added... Quite confusing rules.|
Jul 29, 2013
|Greenapples, the rules were clear; it was your assumption that confused things. |
