Trigrams (Posted on 2005-10-07) Difficulty: 4 of 5
The following groups of three letters, or "trigrams", can all be found
in one or more English words, obscure scientific terms not included.
Can you find a word for each of the ten?

(N.B. The trigrams may be at the beginning, middle, or end of a
word, but the letters must not be mixed or interspersed with others.
For example: KHS could be found in sheiKHS but not in bucKSHot or
KHakiS.)

         BWA
         CKK
         DGM
         GZW
         KTH
         LCR
         OKK
         TSC
         XII
         ZWI
