In an earlier Word Ways article, I constructed a variety of 'hexword' patterns by inscribing letters in individual hexagonal tiles to form three-letter words for each group of tiles meeting at a common point. This article considers the analogous problem for pavements of equilateral triangles. Six adjacent triangular tiles form a hexagon with rays meeting at a central point; thus, letters inscribed on these tiles can be combined to form six-letter words arranged around this point.
