Chine

SEE how many words you can make using the letters below. All your words must be at least 4 letters long, and must include the letter (change).

We found commonly used words, plus one 9-letter word. Can you do better?

Use each letter only once. But if there are e.g. two As, you can used them both.

Don’t count proper nouns such as April, Zeus, or Newcastle (pretty much anything that has to be spelled with a capital letter at the start), or acronyms like HMRC.

Don’t just add -S for plurals or third person singular verbs, e.g. CAT → CATS or SPEAK → SPEAKS.

Shippards Chine, on the south west coast of the Isle of Wight, a few miles from Yarmouth. A ‘chine’ (to rhyme with ‘dine’) can be a mountain ridge, or in butcher’s parlance, the spine of an animal such as a sheep, reflecting Old French ‘eschine’; but especially in Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, it means the opposite, a steep-sided cut, valley or ravine, from the Old English ‘cinu’, a cleft.
