List 13 words such that the first contains an anagram of the word ONE, the second contains an anagram of the word TWO, etc. The anagrammed words cannot be directly in the containing word, so that while "ounce", "sonnet" and "enough" are good for "one"; "gone" and "toner" are not.
Each letter of the alphabet is to be used once as either a first or last letter in one of the thirteen words
Try to use common short words. There's at least one solution with a total of 93 letters.
(In reply to A Solution - 127 letters
Great work fwaff!
I took one look at OneLook, but didn't see how it had any anagram lookup. Perhaps I missed something.
Regarding common words, here's another hint: Bryan's "More Suggestions" comment actually had three words that are in my solution that will be posted, and a fourth word that's the same as another on my list except his has an added letter in the middle, not affecting anything but the letter count.
