Letter By Letter II

Language brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.

Beginning with the word "AT", continue adding letters from the given pool to create new words, until you are left with a seven-letter word that means "shaped like an open palm". You can add a letter to any spot in the word, but you cannot mix-up the order of letters while doing so.

Pool: A E L M P

1) AT
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)

The hint gives short definitions of all words created in the process of finding the final seven-letter word (This will make the teaser really easy!).

Wow! I am the first. I guess I did not understand the clues, but I got 3 words right and the others were different than yours. Fun though trying what I did.

Great teaser, even if a bit easy. I was able to do it in my head (though I had pen and paper at the ready), and even though I didn't look at the hint, I got the words in the same order as you gave them in. Really fun teaser.
