Overlaps Part 2


Susan Thorpe


In the first of the letter overlap arrangements below, the offspring are obtained from the parent word by reading from L to R. However, unlike the L to R arrangements in Overlaps Part 1, the offspring from the end of the parent word >1 precedes the offspring from the beginning of the parent word >. The pairs of offspring form a phrase-like configuration or are related in some way.
