Crab : Make as many words as you can from the letters of a 9-letter word. Can you beat our score?
Crab

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.

The 2-6-0 mixed traffic steam locomotives built between 1926 and 1932 and designed by George Hughes, Chief Mechanical Engineer of the LMS, were nicknamed ‘Crabs’. The original is disputed: it may refer to the steeply-angled valve-gear and cylinders (dictated by a narrow loading-gauge) which resemble a crab’s pincers, or to the side-to-side movement of the engine at speed.
