Some Thoughts All but the last | Comment 2 of 8 |
1.  EAR seems to fit them all (and none of the missing letters.)

2.  AND seems to fit them all (as well some other single and pairs of letters.)

3.  AIL seems to fit them all (as well as G and V)

4.  HER seems to fit them all

5.  AIR seems to fit them all

6.  EAST seems to fit them all

7.  LESS seems to be the best fit although CHINLESS is questionable.

8.  HOUSE seems the best fit

9.  is giving me troubles.   There aren't many six letter J words and I can't think of any that end in a five letter word.
