Concluding a series on meaningful word ladders, here's another special type of ladder. Consonant cascades (CCs) are meaningful cases of "consonant movements" (CMs) in which all substitutions occur at the same position. They are modeled on vowel cascades and vowel movements (02-53), so ideally the ladders are alphabetical or anti-alphabetical. The Word Stool bake cake, if a Japanese fish cake, can expand to Bake cake (fake hake?), make sake.
