A spiral word (Posted on 2016-08-04) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Coil the word REMEDIABLENESSES as a spiral into a 4x4 grid (see below) and surprisingly you get a crossword square with 8 valid words: 4 across and 4 down (+ARMS & BEE read diagonally).


Try to find another example(s), forget the diagonals.

(In reply to re: Questionable words by Ady TZIDON)

"Words" found in Urban Dictionary are not true words unless supported by a standard (unabridged) dictionary or other respectable lexical source.  Urban Dictionary, on the the most part, is a farce.  Online dictionaries that cite the Urban Dictionary definitions are not valid sources.

The Urban Dictionary definition entry for LEM does have a support in its meaning from the dialectal English word. One dialectal definition of LEM is a loft or a floor of boards used as a storage shelf (in the manner of an attic can be used for storage). The noun could be used a verb in the like manner as the word SHELF, with the further meaning of shelving the book into a place of long-term storage.  The fact that there is evidence that supports the term used as a word, does not validate Urban Dictionary as a valid authoritative, lexical source.
