Main Question or Discussion Point

A PERFECT WORD is a word in which ANY one letter could be replaced by another letter to form another word.

An example of a 4-letter Perfect Word is CAST because C could be replaced by L to form LAST or A by O to form COST, or S by R to form CART, and T by E to form CASE.

For a point : Give a 6-letter Perfect Word.

Greg, I can't come up with a seven letter word. Why don't you open it up to the rest of the gang.
