Present in 6 (Posted on 2007-04-25) Difficulty: 3 of 5
In this grid horizontal and vertical words are symmetrical about the upper left to lower right diagonal.

T R Y
R Y E
Y E S

This grid is to be reformed by replacing all letters in 6 steps having regard to symmetry, changing one letter at a time and using only English words.

While my solution reflects my title at which you might not arrive, can you at least publish a new grid under my rules?

Asides:
1. Show us any 3 x 3 grids which you have composed from a significantly different initial grid and their development.
2. Beginning with a 4 x 4 grid is it possible to arrive at a new grid, same rules, in 10 steps?

NOTE:
Because of the nature of the language - "English words" - is a difficult phrase to define. If a word seems to need justification then please do so; challenges are otherwise likely.
