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

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 wall-painting of St George slaying the ‘dragon’, in the church of St Gregory in Bedale, North Yorkshire. In the Old Testament, the dragon (i.e. a huge serpent, as in the Garden of Eden) symbolises the devil; St George, a Roman soldier, triumphed over the devil when he was executed for declaring his faith in Jesus Christ before the Roman Emperor Diocletian.
