What is a perfect word

  1. Sep 10, 2003 #1
    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.

    Robert, I'll give you another point if you can give me a seven letter perfect word. :smile:

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