Cut

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.

A village cricket match at Ledsham in the West Riding of Yorkshire, a few miles from Leeds; the spire of All Saints’ Church rises above the trees. Although the photo has the look of a 1950s postcard, it was taken on Midsummer’s Day in 2003. Close scrutiny of the batsmen’s gear and the umpire’s leg wear will confirm the date.
