Word Ways


Susan Thorpe


The reader is referred to the headshot and footprint categories listed in Eric Iverson's Headshots And Footprints (August 2005). As an extension to Eric's article, I have compiled the following A-Z lists of headshot words and footprint words which are all heterograms (no repeated letters). Most of the words can be found in the Oxford English DIctionary, Second Edition. Places, identified by country, are taken from the United States Board on Geographic Names. Other references: Hodge = Handbook of American Indians ed. by F.W.Hodge, 1907; Sted. = Stedman's Medical Dictionary; Web2=Webster's Second Edition.
