The Amazing Shrinking Word (Posted on 2003-08-19) Difficulty: 4 of 5
There is a common English word that is nine letters long.

Each time you remove a letter from it, it still remains an English word - from nine letters right down to a single letter.

What is the original word, and what are the words that it becomes after removing one letter at a time?

Some Thoughts How to proceed Comment 12 of 12 |
The only english word having a single digit are 'a' and 'o'.Thus by adding one letter at a time such that is makes a sensible word,one could end up in many answers.
