Word Ways


Steve Kahan


In this installment of "What's In? - A Name!", five-letter names have been removed from forty words and the remaining letters have been presented in consolidated form. For example, 'can' would readmit NADIA to reconstruct caNADIAn, a perfectly fine response were proper nouns eligible as answers. (They are not!) To make matters a bit more interesting this time, the genders, while equally represented, have been mixed together, much like the dorms in many modern-day colleges. Your goal is to imbed the invisible names into their compressions in order to identity the original word. Happy hunting!
