Can you name at least 3 words of ten or more letters that can be typed entirely using only the top letter row of a standard typewriter keyboard ?



Answer

TYPEWRITER
PEPPERROOT
PEPPERWORT
PERPETUITY
PEWTERWORT
PIROUETTER
PREREQUIRE
PRETORTURE
PROPRIETOR
REPERTOIRE
REPETITORY
TETTERWORT.

If hyphens are allowed, then TEETER-TOTTER (12 letters) is possible, as is TEETER-TOTTERER (14 letters), although the latter is not found in dictionaries. Another possible 12-letter word, POWERTRIPPER, is also not in any major dictionary.
