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?

By the way, in the line
FOR i = 1 TO LEN(w$) ' STEP LEN(w$) - 1
the latter part is commented out by the apostrophe. When not commented out it limited the dropping of letters to the first and last letter of each successive word.
